OK, I've been a little worried about the fingerprints b/c I have a small (mostly healed) cut on the side of my thumb. Fortunately, as the guy was doing our fingerprints he said "wow, you and your husband both have good fingerprints". This made me feel better and he didn't say a thing about my thumb. Now, we are still yet to see if they get rejected but everything looks good so I'm going to assume things will work out.

Now to wait 8 weeks (at best) for approval....blah! Oh well, there are much worse things in the world. This is just waiting. Frustrating but liveable. It's all in God's hands!


  1. It is all in God's hands. Now that your hands are done..haha. I know, lame joke :D

  2. Oh I am sorry about the wait. I can say from just having been there it is rough. :( But if you have the expectation of it being 8 weeks hopefully that will help. I had it in my head I would get approval in 6 weeks and that made the wait unbearable after 6. You will get thru - I will pray your approval comes super fast!!!!!

  3. Congrats on your upcoming adoption! I noticed in one of your recent posts that you must live somewhat close to DC. ~ We are currently living in NOVA. My hubby and I have 2 bio children and 2 years ago we adopted a little girl from China. We are contemplating another adoption (after we move into our new home and hubby is back from deployment). I have heard good things about Barker.

    I just wanted to say hi. I am still trying to get acclimated to the area and meet new people.
