These photos are of a Kazakh girl wearing a wonderful dandelion crown, the famous Kazakh hunting, pet-eagle and the flag of Kazakhstan (note: The eagle flies under the sun).
The finger printing appointment at the Dept. of Homeland Security/Customs and Immigration Services went well. We arrived at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday morning to a line up of the GR international melting pot. The machine digitally read our fingers while we watched on-screen for the unique patterning. The purpose of this round of finger printing is for the United States government to approve our adoption from Kazakhstan.
While waiting 1-2 months for this one page letter of approval we still have a few more forms to complete.
In the meantime we are enjoying the warm spring and family traditions of the season.
