After 5 weeks of waiting, our TA (travel approval) is here. China knows we are coming. Our family coordinator called just a few minutes ago and said that they have tentative dates for us to travel to China.
It looks like we will be leaving on January 8 and returning either the 22nd or 24th. I hope its the 22nd. We had an extended stay last time and I will definitely be ready to come home by then. We hope to have confirmed dates from China by Christmas.
So, thank you Lord for answering our prayers that we receive TA by Christmas.
