I have adopted and brought my child into the U.S. Is there any reason for me to be fingerprinted again?

No, there is no need for you to be fingerprinted again. Your application for a specific child was approved. If you file another Form I-600A, Application for Advance Processing of Orphan Petition, to adopt another child, you will need to be fingerprinted at that time.
