Waiting for travel approval

I will never forget the pure joy of finally receiving our LOA! We waited a long time and we are so excited to be so much closer to meeting Cate. This wait for TA is NOTHING like the wait for LOA, but it is still a wait. TA's usually take 3-4 weeks. Please pray for us that ours will come soon. We would love to travel by the middle of September. Thank you for all of your prayers and support!

Oh yes! Waiting is horrid. Our papers went to Washington DC this morning. I'm very impatient! =) As always, your family is near to my heart and prayers!
I am SO glad you have a blog! I love keeping up to date on Cate.

Hey, I got your comment on my blog. When J is in China, I am going to her house to see her cousin and the kids. Maybe we could meet for lunch or something? I'll let you know when we are coming. Of course that will depend on TA, and you not being there at the same time. Although it would be super cool if you were!

Sending positive thoughts and prayers your way! We are still waiting on Immigration approval. It is so difficult when your child is waiting for you and you are waiting for approvals of one sort or another!

Best to you,
Erin
