We are still waiting on that little paper that's called a travel approval, before we can make any big plans for going to China to pick up our little ones! Oh how we want them home! To hear their laughter, see their smiles! All we want to do is get over there!
For those who don't know, mom, dad, me, and Amelia are going on this trip. We have all agreed that Amelia would not be able to handle that long of a separation from mommy. I'm going because, well three little ones is kinda a lot for mom and dad alone to deal with. So, I will be there to help, take video, and pictures, things a tourist would do. ;) We are all very excited about going!
I've been looking at hotels too! Here is the one (the one I'm really excited about) that we will be staying at in Shanghai. http://www.fairmont.com/peacehotel.
Again! Please be praying that we get our travel approval soon! We have been blessed with so many prayers from dear brothers and sisters in the Lord! Thank you so much! They are GREATLY appreciated!
Oh how faithful is the Lord! What a great peace it is to know that no matter what, He is in control. No matter how long it takes, His timing is perfect.
Here are some summer time pictures!
P.S I will post right way when we get any word on traveling.
