Norfolk fingerprinting...done!

Man, it feels like things are mooooving!

Last Friday (was that really a week ago already?), we FedEx'd our dossier to the courier in DC. It was processed at the State Department this past Monday. It was submitted to the Chinese Embassy on Tuesday. Our courier will pick it up on Monday and overnight it back to us. We will then send it to Wide Horizons who will then send it to China. I can't believe that in just a matter of a week or two (prayerfully) our dossier could be in China! That's astounding to me.

For your viewing pleasure, this is our dossier.

I once saw a photo of a dossier and, being the visual person I am, it helped me to take it in a bit. Not to mention that these two Vannas add so much to this photo! :)

We also completed our USCIS appointment in Norfolk on Wednesday! A high-five was had after we strolled out of the Department of Homeland Security's U.S. Customs and Immigration Services' (USCIS) office with not a single glitch to be had! I think that was a first. To think that two major milestones were crossed in just one week tickles me pink. Okay, purple. :)

Our kids are such troopers! After racing out of the house at 7:30 AM (and it wasn't even a school day!) and driving two hours for a 15-minute appointment we felt like a fun activity was due us all. So we spent the day in Norfolk touring the USS Wisconsin and the Nauticus Museum. The kids fed the koi and learned all about the monstrous battleship that so many of our servicemen called home for part of their lives. It was a great day! In more ways than one!
