OK...GRRR!

MD fingerprints just came back for the second time. The accompanying letter says they are "smeared, blurred or unindentifiable". They really don't look particularly worse than others we've had done. Those MD computers are picky! Erik is going to call Monday and see if there is a way to have them done digitally here with the State Bureau of Investigation and sent to MD (maybe using AFIS- Automated Fingerprint Identification System). If not, I think he's just going to have to make a trip up there. Luckily, he can go visit his Mom and take a daytrip up to MD from her home in VA.

We'll see.... Pray we'll find an easy, quick solution to this issue!

Oh, to think I may have all this to look forward to....

I really hope it all gets sorted out for you soon. I can't imagine how frustrating it must be.

Praying for you both....

Hi,

I just found your blog on momblogs, and I live in Texas. I also going through the adoption process, I went through a company called IBT to have my fingerprints done. It cost $44.20 and what they did was send me to a local location to have the prints done. It was done digitally so there were no errors. If you are working with a agency they should he able to send to someone who do the same thing so you won't have to worry about smeared prints. GOOD Luck and GOD Bless

Thank you all for your kind words, advice and offers of help!! Erik is going to have to go up to MD to do the fingerprints. I'll explain in a post later. His mom lives outside DC, so he'll stay with her and zip up to Baltimore and then home.
