CIS anyone??


2 posts in 2 days?! This is the jackpot for all you blog stalkers out there!! (you know who you are...)


I am very excited to say that we finaly got our CIS fingerprinting appointment in the mail this very day!! It was rediculous how excited we got, I cannot even imagine how giddy I will be when something big actualy happens like a referral or going to get our child for goodness sakes! Anyway, it came today but there was a bit of a bummer moment when we realized that our appointment is not until September 20th. dangit. Incase you are wondering that is 3 weeks away! But I am trying to look on the bright side and here is my thinking- we only waited about 3 weeks to get this in the mail (and i was figuring 6ish) so technicaly in my little timeline in my head (all you adopting parents outhere know you have the exact same crazy timeline in your little head, that is all figured out to the day of when you "should" get your baby!) we are ahead of schedule so that will make up for the stinky 3 week wait for our appointment. That is my way of making myself feel better. :)

Now that I look back at this post I'm pretty sure it makes sense only to me...but oh well, all you need to know is that we are one step closer to our son! yahoo!

Oh no...It makes sense to me too!I have my "head" timeline and I also jumped up and down with excitement right in front of the postal lady when we got our fingerprint appointment. So..I know EXACTLY what you are talking about. I know it is a little disappointing for the appointment to be that far off. I felt like that about our appointment. But, now we are down to less than one week...and my excitement is building. Now the "head" timeline is based on how fast we get our I-171H back. The biggest thing though is that we are both getting so close to the end...to our babies! Yea!

YEAH- Makes absolutely perfect sense to me too!! I'm so happy for you- I'm actually screaming over here!!! We got our approval 12 business days after we got fingerprinted! It's gonna be here before you know it and you'll joing the "waiting" club. With the couts being closed I still think there's a good chance that we'll travel together and finaly meet! By the way- your blog is one of my favorites too and Linsey's! I hope one day we all meet and our kids will play together! Again- I'm really sharing in your happiness today- I know how important this is!

Yippee!! Fingerprinting:-) I thought I had hit the jackpot when I got mine. Now I just want my 171-H. Today was 60 days since I sent my homestudy in (not that I am keeping track or anything:-)Eventually we will get our kids and little pieces of paper won't matter!!

That is so exciting!! I remember when I got our appointment in the mail. I was jumping up and down and cheering with my self all alone in the kitchen (Filipe was at work). It's funny how excited you can get, not even for an actual approval, but for an appointment for fingerprinting.
