Disappointed. Long story, very short. We had our local fingerprints done almost 7 weeks ago. These are a part of our home study. A part of our home study that is preventing us from moving forward without it.
7 weeks. 7 long weeks. Home study is done. We are just waiting. I called the private company that is supposed to process them and then send them off to the FB*I and then on to our state beaureu of investigation before making there way to DHR in our state. I call daily to check on our status and they are "processing"
Our prints haven't even left this company yet.
I made an error(what I now know was a mistake for my emotional health) by posting the question of how long fingerprints have been taking in our state on a couple of the adoption Yaho* groups I belong to. Response?
Am I being punked?
5-6 months just to process the local fingerprints?
I have to go throw up now.
But then I remember.....all in HIS timing, all in HIS timing, all in HIS timing. The Creator of the heavens and the Earth, the Lord of lord's, the King of king's, and dare I think that a few itty-bitty fingerprints(oh that He designed by the way) are gonna stand in His way?
Thank you Lord for picking me up when I fall down. Thank you for loving me through this pesky flesh of mine that wants to get impatient and frustrated. Thank you for your wisdom and your provision and your plan through every little bit of this process. Thank you for loving me just as much as you love that fingerprint proccesser lady. I love you, and I praise you through it all.
Whew. I feel better already! Now off for some ice cream.....cuz ya know....flesh remember?
A work in progress.
