We just heard from the agency that no TA's (Travel Approvals) came today and they will not be coming until after Chinese New Year. That means we will not be leaving for China on March 8th. We know God has already planned our dates ,but the wait is so hard especially since we have had her little picture out in the living room since Nov.13th and know she is not home with us. Praying TA's come soon.

Getting our visas

We went and got our visas today. It's a cool stamp they put in the back of your passport. We had some issues as we couldn't prove we lived in Germany and they turned us away. We walked out of the building after waiting in line for an hour and Mike remembered we had German drivers licenses and we ran back in right before they closed got our pictures taken waited back in line for the only gal who spoke English and we came back today 3 days later to pick up our visas. We really are going to China!!!

The Fed EX man arrives with Grace's paperwork and photos

We have been waiting today for the Fed Ex man. After 2 failed attempts to deliver our package they managed to arrive. Even though the man didn't speak English he was more than willing for me to take his picture with the boys!!

We get our seeking letter!!!!! Jan 31, 2006

Mike had a trip to England for business for a few days and I couldn't help wanting to come along so we left the boys at their cousins and Nanny and Poppa and flew the hour flight to England. We are staying at the Holiday Inn checking the computer to see if there is any news on our seeking letter, nothing so I read my e-mails and as I'm checking up pops an e-mail saying we have left 2 messages at your home and CHI has received our SEEKING LETTER!!!! YAHHOO!
We are soooo excited we started calling everyone in the States to tell them. We would have called people in Germany, but it's about 1am. Now we wait for TA!!! We will call the boys in the morning to tell them.
