Yes, my fingerprints have been processed and I have my clearance letter. It took a long time, but now we can finally proceed. Of course, they arrived on Friday - the same day Bruce was heading up to the cottage for a week long vacation. So, I will be leaving the cottage on Monday and driving back to Grand Rapids to have the remainder of our dossier paperwork apostilled. Our social worker can now officially issue our home study and I can begin the NBC process. It feels great to be moving forward. Please pray for our NBC approval to go smoothly with no unexpected delays. Hopefully, we will be meeting our twins for the first time in the Fall. Just saying that makes me smile.
We also received our review from our international adoption doctor regarding the updated medical records for the kids. Nothing in the review we did not already know about. The kids seem to be doing well despite being in an orphanage. They are very small - less than the 3rd percentile for both height and weight. Hopefully that will change after being home for awhile, with proper nutrition and plenty of love.
We have so much to be thankful for - cannot wait to share that with our twins.
