We just received tentative travel dates from our agency--YAHOO!!! Looks like we'll be traveling December 18th-January 1st. As soon as our consulate appointment is confirmed, we'll be able to make the necessary arrangements for travel. Time to get busy on the lengthening "to do" list--will it ever end?!!

Waiting For Second Travel Approval

Our family hit a snag with our first travel approval, and our agency has had to apply for a second approval. They sent the request to China almost four weeks ago, so we're hoping it will come soon so that we can still bring her home in time for Christmas. We have been told that the government is several weeks behind in processing, so that makes us worried.

Although this has been a frustrating time for us, we have managed to keep extremely busy with our jobs and other activities. We have received our Chinese visas and travel vaccinations, and are working on getting her room decorated (very girly). Three of the walls are painted "art deco pink" and the fourth will be an accent wall, which is a work in progress. It will be a beach scene, with her Chinese name in characters over her bed. We will put pictures on this site as soon as it is finished!

We will post as soon as we have more information from our agency!!!
