Game On!!!

We received our FBI Background Check in the mail today, which should have taken another month to come back. It arrived a mere 20 days after we sent off the request. Wahoo!!

Prior to mailing our background request, we found a guide on kazakhadoptivefamilies.com suggesting we put "Urgent: International Adoption" on the outside of our mailer. The theory is that there is a huge pile of background requests, and the soft-hearted FBI Agents put all the adoption requests on the top. We held little faith in this simple step, but apparently the FBI is full of adoption-loving softies. Thank God!!

So now that the FBI Background Check is back, we need to power through the rest of our dossier requirements. No more slacking off and reading other Kazakh adoption blogs; we have a lot of work to do in a short amount of time. The words to Jerry Reed's song "Eastbound and Down" are running through my head. :)
