Fingerprints and Adoption Update

I finally got my fingerprints back from the FBI and guess what? I'm not a criminal! But I am confused. I didn't have to go in for any sort of meeting or anything like other people did. Maybe it's because I live in DC. So now what? I guess I'll just send this on to my social worker and maybe I can finally get my home study completed! LOL

Although I still haven't finished all of my online adoption training. I completed 30 hours of training through DC Children and Family Services last year, isn't that good for something? I'm trying to figure that out. Can't I even get 2 credits? Every little penny counts over here. I guess I could take my Ethiopia courses though. I'll do that over Christmas since I'm bahhumbug. My goal is to get my home study finally completed, written up and in my hands by the end of January! Wish me luck!

Good Luck!

You have a big training commitment, hey? I'm always amazed at the variations in adoption processes out there. There are no standards anywhere, so it seems...other than EVERYBODY PAYS BIG TIME!

Congrats on your fingerprints - I waited a long time to get mine but only needed to go in to get printed - no other meetings. I was wondering what info you are learning about Ethiopia. My agency doesnt' have anything we have to learn about ET but I would love to if it is open to anyone.

Are you sure the FBI has your fingerprints? Sounds fishy that you passed. Hmmm....

Congrats!
