We have TA !!!!!!!
We got the call from our agency today - we have been given travel approval by the Chinese government!!!! Technically that means we could leave tomorrow. However we also have to work with the US consulate in China. The last thing we do before we leave China is get permission from them to bring him home(a US visa). We have heard that the earliest available appt with them is August 25. So, counting backwards the days we need in Guangzhou, Tianjin (where we get Andy), and Fuzhou (where we visit Rics grandparents) we now expect to leave around August 11th and return the 26th, exactly the time table I have been searching flights for the last three days. There has been, about this trip, such a strong feeling of being clearly led by God. So many things are different from what we originally expected when we began to adopt 2 other boys two years ago (when we thought only Jerry would go to get them) but everything about this feels soooo right. Which helps my Very Fearful self to be at peace. (I'm not saying I'd turn down an offer of someones antianxiety medecine for those plane flights however..8>) I'm writing from Lindsay and Travis's where I just found the sheet I have been looking for for Andy's bed (red, the last thing I needed, I think)
