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!!!


  1. Hi Lisa:)
    I hope you get your long awaited TA soon! And be sure to post pics of Kate's room once you are done. I can't wait to see it...I need some inspiration, since we are about to start on Liya's room.

  2. Hi Lisa!

    Wow, Kate is gorgeous! I am so excited to have met a family who might be traveling at the same time as us. Hopefully we will meet in Hefei :)

    I'm so sorry about your TA snag! That just stinks! Are you i-800 or i-600?

    I am really hoping that next week will be the week that TAs come!

    Please let me know when you get your TA!
