Waiting on Travel Approval!

I am excited that we have now moved on to waiting for Travel Approval (TA), the last step in our journey!  Our Article 5 was picked up from the U.S. Consulate and has been sent to Beijing to the CCCWA to wait to be processed for TA.  It seems like we have been on this road forever, and I am glad we will be getting off very soon.  It looks like we should be home to celebrate Christmas with Jack. 

I am thankful the Lord has chosen this path for our family!  Pray for us as we wait and prepare to travel.  Time will hopefully fly by!

What are we waiting on now?

Life after LOA...we sent our immigration paperwork to be approved on the 9th of September.  We were approved on the 27th.  From there we need to be "cabled" All this means is that all of our immigration/visa paperwork is sent to the the Consulate in Guangzhou, China.  Once it arrives, we wait 2 weeks for what is called Article 5.  The U.S. Consulate issues Article 5 (kind of a U.S. letter of acceptance).  Then after Article 5, we will officially be waiting for our TA (Travel approval).

We could be traveling by mid November!!  My dream timeline would to leave on November 16th.  However, I don't know what will happen.  Please pray for me!!  I need to trust the Lord's timing.  I have been given many opportunities to trust...but I obviously need more practice!! 

Hopefully soon I will be able to post that we received our TA....until then keep our family in your prayers!
