6 days...

until we board a plane headed to China!!!

That's right...

TRAVEL APPROVAL

We were on Day 16 of waiting and hoping, praying it would come. Then I got the call yesterday at 3:12pm CST that both our TAs had arrived at our adoption agency.

Woohoo!!!

I had to go outside to scream, as I was at the DMV waiting for my 18 yr old to take his driving test.

So then the next big prayer was CA.

For those of you wondering that is your Consulate Appointment to get your child's Visa to enter the US. It is the last step in China before you can bring your child home. In our case CHILDREN.

And if we were going to get to China by Thanksgiving, as hoped, we needed CA for first week in Dec... and we needed to find out fast, because we had to get plane tickets Monday is a US holiday... Veterans Day (thank you to all our vets... Steve is one)  But that meant the US Consulate in Guangzhou, China will be closed Monday. So our wonderful China coordinator worked into the night to get our CA and at 12:40am CST I got the email that we indeed have CAs for 10am Tues Dec 4th.
Hallelujah! Praise the Lord who works ALL miracles.

Next was plane tickets... our awesome travel agent was standing by and found us super flights. And we leave in 6 days from DFW at 10:30am Thur Nov 15th. We are so excited!!!

Sorry for the not-immediate post, but our heads have absolutely been spinning trying to get everything arranged since it happened.

And anyone wanting to welcome Kai & Eli home, are invited to show up at the airport. more info to come as we get details from the travel agent. :)

THANK YOU ALL so very very much for all the prayers, support and help to bring our boys home. I know many of you have really prayed and some for Kai Joseph for years. Those prayers were NOT in vain, they were answered and we will be in China in 6 days and he will be HOME in less than 4 weeks.

We do have the funds to get us to China. Praise God for HIS provision.

We do still have LOTS of 2013 Adoption Success Stories wall calendars available for sale. They (all 200 of them) arrived yesterday. We would love to mail them all out before we leave.

Order yours today and think gifts too: Only $12 each, plus s/h ($3.50 1st, $1.50 ea add) http://adventure4eli.chipin.com/adoption-calendar

We will be in China for 3 weeks, and hubby only has 30 hours of paid leave. So December's monthly budget is going to be very tight. We paid upfront for the calendars. So hopefully they will all sell.

Thanks again & God bless all our prayer warriors and supporters tenfold!

We are going to CHINA!!!!!

Head spinning and so elated,
Sherry & family
