Pin It Praising God right now!!!! We got TA tonight and we are leaving for China NEXT WEEK!! Our sweet hard working adoption coordinator  tried so hard to get the authorities  to allow us to travel this weekend but China said no, not enough time to have the paper TA in hand and all the provincial stuff in order before our arrival. So we gracefully accept a 21st Consulate appointment and scream with delight that Ivy will be in my arms on the 13th of this month!!!!
Thank you for your prayers!

Here is a picture of my ~driver?~ carrying my backpack to my gate for me..... ha!!

Woo Hoo!! I have been reading your blog for a while now and am excited to see another family leaving for China. I have one friend leaving from Atlanta in the morning and one leaving in about two weeks. She is also waiting on her TA. My 4 1/2 year old is also a spicy Hunan girl from Yueyang City. Praying for safe travels.
