Well, today I (John) was supposed to finally have my appointment to get my physical. As fate would have it I received a phone call early in the morning telling me that it would have to be rescheduled. So now I am going Friday.
All wasn't bad news though. When I went to get the mail I was thrilled to see a letter from the Department of Homeland Security. It's been such a long wait I had nearly forgotten about it. The letter informed us of our appointment to go to Charlotte and get our fingerprints done. The appointment is for Jan. 3.
These are small steps in the ongoing and very long process of adoption but at least they are steps forward.
