Who knew fingerprints expire

Due to the extended wait time, I was concerned that we may have to redo some of our dossier paperwork (which would be a real bummer). However, after doing some checking around, all we will need to redo is our fingerprints since they expire in June. Gene can't understand how fingerprints "expire" but apparently they do (this must make criminals happy). But if this is all we need to keep our dossier current, I'm thrilled!

What's a Blog?

It seems like it was just months ago when I first asked that question, and look at me now! This is a way for me to keep anyone interested updated on our adoption journey.

Unfortunately, at the moment there isn't much to share. We are in the long waiting part of the process. When will we get a referral for Esther? We're not too sure, hopefully by August (can you hear the trepidation in my voice)?

The last stats on the wait time to referral is 11 to 12 months from LID (fancy abbreviation for log-in-date with China). Our LID was August 17, 2005, which means we may get a picture of Esther around that same time this year. Then, after another 1 to 2 months, we get to go pick her up.

So now we just wait and try to stay busy.
