Well, it's done! We have been fingerprinted and the information is on its way to Memphis to be processed! This is the part that we expect will involve a long wait. Please pray for a speedy processing time. We can't send any paperwork out until the social worker's licence is renewed in June since it is so close to expiring. But we will feel much better having the forms in hand!
My sister lives in Nashville so we were able to spend the day with her and she kept the girls while we went to the immigration office. We were there around an hour waiting after we got the forms and handed them in to wait for fingerprinting. In that time we sat across from an older couple who was there because the wife, who was from Russia, had her name spelled wrong on her green card and also needed to change to her married name. We enjoyed talking to her and showing off our few Russian words! Steve was wearing his shirt from Moldova that says, "God's Design" in Russian. She confirmed that and also translated the word on the back for us: 'kurasho', good.
We are going to have to go back again later for fingerprinting again because for some reason the two different forms can not use the same biometric fingerprints. Go figure. I have no idea why, but that's okay, we'll get to visit Bethany and John again.
