We have completed our fingerprinting requirement for U.S. immigration. Now we will wait to receive a document from the government which basically approves us to adopt internationally. This is the last document we need to complete our dossier. Once we receive it I will need to go to Boston to get 2 documents sealed by the state of MA. After that, our dossier will shipped to a courier service in D.C. who will bring our dossier to the embassy and state departments for more authentication. Our documents will be bundled into 2 packages, a power of attorney letter and everything else. Then it will shipped to our agency in Michigan who will then ship it off to Ethiopia. Realistically my goal is to have our dossier arrive in ET sometime in December. It will really depend on the turn around time of the document we are waiting on. 

I had been so worried about our fingerprints because I read a blog post by someone who had to redo fingerprints more than twice because they did not come out well. We have been using moisturizer and made sure not to use strong chemicals beforehand. It was definitely a good excuse not to clean the bathrooms last weekend! Anyway, the guy said I had nice prints. I also felt better when I saw that the whole thing is computerized and the computer screen read "reject" when the print was not good enough. So, hopefully, everything will turn out well and we will receive the document we are waiting for.
