Finger prints, finger prints, finger prints

So we just received the letter in the mail with our appointment to get biometric finger prints done for the USCIS.  We also need to do finger prints this week for the FBI.  We will have pretty much been finger printed by the whole world.  ;-)
But at least it is a step forward.  Once we get approval from USCIS we will be approved by the United States of America to adopt.  So we are getting there one step at at time.
I am really hoping that we get to go on our first trip to Bulgaria in June, but I guess we will just have to wait and see.
While we wait I am trying to do lots of research on Arthrogryposis.  Turns out that one of the new treatments is Estim.  This is placing electrodes on the muscles.  Turns out that is the same thing we have been using for Baby A's clubbed foot.  So we already know how to use it....wooo hooo.  I also love Baby A's pt at Children's hospital.  So I hope to use the same pt for "Rita."  It is so helpful when you already know the services that are available.  I think back to when Grace was born and we had no idea about specialist etc.  We've come a long way baby (shout out to an 80s commercial ;-)

Thanks for reading!  We are off to a classic car show for our buddy Austin Williams.  Austin has been fighting an amazing fight against cancer for the last 2 1/2 years.  He loves cars, so we are going to do support him.
