Chinese Proverb

Red Threads:
When a child is born, an invisible red thread reaches out from the child's spirit and connects to all important people who will enter the child's life. As the child grows, the threads shorten, bringing closer those people who are destined to be together.

Wednesday in China

Today we had our US Consulate appointment. We have no photos as cameras are forbidden inside. We all took an oath that our paperwork is true. We turned in all of the Chinese adoption paperwork. Tomorrow we will get back his Chinese passport with a USA visa in it. Once we land in Chicago he will be a US citizen. We leave for Hong Kong tomorrow afternoon once we get his passport and visa. Please pray the visa is processed on schedule and we get on that train. We are ready to get home. Today we packed up our bags and prepared for the long trip home. We need prayers for smooth and safe travels. We will be on a 16 hour flight with a 19 month old. We did not do much else today since we had to be up by 6 AM to be able to make it to our Consulate appointment on time. Austin and Daddy took a nap together and Mama worked on more paperwork and packing. Hooray Hooray it is packing time. We cannot wait to hug and kiss on our girls at home. 2 weeks is so long to be apart.

  1. Two weeks is a very long time to be away from your other children. Hooray that you are so close to heading home! I have enjoyed following your journey to Austin.
