|Faces of Nepal|
Things might be creeping along a bit while I am in the 'waiting for the investigation' phase of this process. Yesterday morning my forms were in Dubai, and since I didn't hear from anyone today, I can only assume that they will be delivered to the Embassy in Kathmandu on Monday. I don't think it could have happened much faster so I feel good about that.
I found out my fingerprint appointment is all the way over in Spokane!!! Apparently the computer assigns a random time, date and location based on your zip code. I got tossed half-way across the state! So I have gotten something called an INFOPASS, which will allow me access to the Yakima USCIS Office where I can, in person only, request for a change of location or date. I am hoping that if I drive all the way to Yakima they will be able to accommodate me and just take my fingerprints, but sometimes things don't work quite that way.
On an upside I received a beautiful, inspirational letter from a friend who completed her adoption from Nepal a few years ago. Her boy is thriving and they get together with other families who have also adopted from Nepal once a year for a big 'festival' (camp-out). Yay for the little things that can make each day a bit sweeter.
