Day 15 & Busy, busy week!!
So today is day 15 of our TA wait! I REALLY didn't expect this one... I thought we'd have it before the end of the first week. It's a medical expedite and my agency has been having pretty good luck on the China end!
The bigger issue that come Day 16 of the wait, I can get TA and it does me no good until the 24th when the US Consulate reopens from their move to a new building.
For those new to adoption, here's how it goes. You get travel approval from China and then you schedule a Consulate Appointment where your child will get all their visa stuff done in China so they can enter the US and become a citizen. You schedule everything else in China based on the consulate apt, because without it, a child can't come to the US yet.
Once we have our CA, we can know when Gotcha Day will be and book our flights and hotels.
Oh how I pray that when my agency opens in a couple more hours there will be good news! I trust in God's timing though. It is always better than mine. So, if we have to wait, we will wait and get an extra 2 weeks of prayers in.
Wo ai ni Chengbin!!!
In other news, we are amazingly busy right now. We spent a week down in Alabama & Florida and we will head out on Friday for a few weeks back home in Oklahoma with the family. I can't wait to get caught up on my photography class, eat snocones with the kids, & visit all our family while we wait for our turn to go to China. :)
Thanks for stopping by!
