To China- Finally!

We received confirmation Friday morning of our confirmed appointment at the US embassy, thus giving us the green light to book flights for China.  We leave July 19th, and I plan to work a few days while I am there before our Gotcha day on July 26th!!!  I can't wait to meet her and we didn't have to miss Davis' first day of Kindergarten.  Check in with us often, I will post as often as I can on our travels.  We will return on August 6th.  Keep us in your prayers.

We received updated photos of Hanna- but still NO travel approval

She is just beautiful!  I am so frustrated that we haven't been given authorization to travel, and on top of it, much of our paperwork expires in August.  In short, it means more time away from work, more money and more PAPERWORK!!  I am sure God has a plan, but I have to tell you, its been hard to be patient.  For now, the pictures make me smile even though the pain of more paper pushing doesn't.  Oh well, I can look at her and know she is worth it.
