Federal Digital Fingerprints
Please pray. One of the big pieces left for us to do for our part is to get our biometric fingerprints taken. It is a MAJOR part of the adoption process and from all that we have learned... a rather complicated one. Some states are quick and some are slow when it comes to these fingerprints. I found out yesterday that since we live in Virginia, we are one of the slowest states! UGH! We received a form saying that they received our application. The next step is for us to receive an appointment to go to Alexandria and get our fingerprints taken. It's been over two weeks and no appointment. Once we get the fingerprint appointment (usually scheduled several weeks after we get the notice in the mail), it can take Virginia up to 9 weeks or more to process those fingerprints. Please pray. Everything comes to grinding halt until the fingerprints are completed!!!
