apparently i have nice fingerprints
...or so I'm told. Jon and I went to the Homeland Security office in Tukwila today for our USCIS fingerprint appointment and when I put my finger on the little screen the lady goes, "Ooohh, you have very nice fingerprints!" I did not know there was such a thing, but hey - here's hoping that nice fingerprints get processed faster.
My advice to those who haven't done this yet: bring a book. We had to wait over an hour and the only entertainment is the closed captioning on CNN. Which, incidentally, made me realize why I do not like watching the news: 90% of the words spoken on a newscast are totally meaningless repetitive cliches. As opposed to the stellar quality of TV programs I typically watch... but for some reason I prefer the meaningless cliches of creepy-V-neck-wearing Simon Cowell or stressed-out teenage moms to those of polished news reporters. Go figure.
Anyway... we are officially watching the mailbox for our I-171H and praying that God will show us which child he has for us. Our hope is that there will not be a delay between receiving the I-171H and accepting a referral!
