USCIS biometrics happened

Yesterday Papa, Baby G and I trooped down to our local friendly USCIS office. Thanks to everyone who shared their biometrics experiences!
We live in a pretty large metro area where people immigrate often, so the office was fairly busy. What a great place to people watch! It looked like people were immigrating from at least 4 different countries in the waiting room where we were...
The guy who took our prints told us that he had only ever taken prints for 3 or 4 people who were adopting from Anastacia's country, and that the most common that he encountered were families adopting from African countries.
It took us about an hour to get in and out, but it was so interesting that I didn't mind at all :-)

And for people who are wondering what happens at adoption biometrics, yes, it is just fingerprints. What a relief.

  2. I recommend calling them now and seeing who your officer is. Bug them and it will go faster. :)
