The Gloves - Bad News/Good News

The Bad News ~ driving two hours with nasty lotion and white gloves DID NOT make for good prints.

The Good News ~ we know both sets are no good, our police clearance will land at NBC today, which will clear up the matter, AND we have an adjudicator! Our 800A application arrived at the lock box 5 (yes f.i.v.e.) weeks ago, and we now have an officer to review our application. Further good news is that once our home study and application are approved, we will receive the last itty bitty piece of paper to make our dossier complete.

Why, you ask, are my prints no good or 'unclassifiable'? Glad you asked :) The jury is still out on that one. Some people just have shallow prints. Because I'm a court reporter and have handled two forests worth of paper for the last 21 years, some speculate that's the problem. Others say it's an age thing - but I'm not buying that one! I had no problem with prints in our first two processes, then things changed, except for one good set I eeked out in 2009! I'm guessing it's doing too many dishes.

While we're talking about good news, remember our $500 Gift Card Drawing is in two days!!!!

I had the same problem. I simply couldnt do prints. They told me it would most likely be denied. Two weeks later I got a letter with my clearances.. go figure! LOL
The next year I did it without a problem. I dont know what the difference was!

Ugh...and Yay! Bummed for you about the prints but happy for ya that they are moving past that! And seriously? FIVE WEEKS...insert head going through the wall here. That is crazy sauce!

My fingerprints have been questionable the last two times. I like to think it is because I have worked so hard for the Lord that I'm wearing them right off!

It couldn't be because of age, nope, couldn't be that!

Well...considering I was 25 with our adoption...and my prints NEVER cleared...I don't think age is it. Although they did tell me I had the hands or prints of an old woman! LOL!!! Just another way we are "fearfully & wonderfully made"..although I questioned God thoroughly on that one during our process. lol. I read somewhere recently that those of us with lighter prints are actually EASIER to catch if we commit a crime...made me a little mad that we aren't "easier" to print for an ADOPTION then. Sheesh.
