Fingerprint Appointment Notice!

So, I was practically running to our mailbox and visualizing the unmistakable envelopes from the USCIS, and voila, there they were! (It works sometimes.) Eeeeek! Our biometrics (fingerprinting) appointment has been scheduled for next Friday, October 21 - only a week away! Since my husband, Dave, has a day off work tomorrow, we're considering a walk-in, so he doesn't have to take the morning off work next week. I've heard that a north location in Houston has allowed walk-ins so we'll see if the Sugar Land office will allow it, too. If not, then "hey, we were just passing by, never mind!" and stick to our original appointment.

I opened my husband's letter to double-check his social security # as it was incorrect last time, and to my surprise, it was still wrong. I called my husband to deliver the good news but to also report the error. As I was ranting on about the USCIS, I decided to check and open our I-800A PDF file. Crap. It was my fault; it was MY fault! I had copied and pasted the majority of our information from the OLD I-800A to the new form but neither of us caught the error on both forms! (Okay, let's blame me because I'm responsible for all our adoption paperwork.)

I'm not going to freak out because the USCIS officers took care of it at our appointment date last year. I know I triple-checked every piece of information on our forms but I guess I overlooked Dave's SS#. Urgh.

Okay, let's see how the walk-in goes tomorrow (if we decide to be brave....or, stupid?).

Thanks, ladies, but we've decided to let it be and NOT do the walk-in. Since the appointment is only next Friday, we didn't want to push our luck. Besides, I have a wee paper cut on my index finger, and although it's not an "open wound" it makes me feel better that I have a little excuse not to walk in today :). My husband is much more patient than I am, and he actually said he prefers to assemble the crib :D.
