They're Here!

Our FBI Clearances are finally here!!  We indeed have no FBI histories--what a relief.  ;)  It has been exactly 7 weeks and one day since they received our fingerprints (way back on December 9 and they were finally put in the system on January 4).  I've been calling at least once a week for the past 6 weeks to follow their progress.  Every time I called they said it would take 8 to 10 weeks for them to be completed.  Wow--did that sound like a long time! 

What an exciting moment when I called on Wed and found out they they had been sent out on Monday!  And even more cool is that our good friends the Harleys also got theirs in the mail today! :)  Some of our other blog friends who sent their fingerprints in just a few days later than us are still waiting...  Guys, so hoping and praying with you that you get exciting FBI news soon, too.

So, what does this mean?  It means that all of the paperwork that we had to complete is finished.  Our Social Worker is writing the actual homestudy report and once that is all okayed we will be put on the Wait List for a referral!  Getting so close to officially waiting! :)

  1. SO happy for you! tomorrow is 7 weeks for us!

  2. YAY !!!! So happy for you. One step closer.

  3. Yay! It won't be long now :) I can't wait to see a number!!!!

  4. OH!!! good for you guys! We got ours put in the system December 7th and they told me last week - two more weeks. I am hoping this week though!
