Travel Approval And Consulate Appointment! YES!!

Hope, your sisters and niece are anxiously awaiting your arrival and Sunnie really thinks you need some Hannah Montana pajamas!!

Our travel approval from China has arrived at CCAI and today we got word that our appointment at the American Consulate in Guangzhou has been confirmed. We can leave for China in a few days to bring home our sweet Hope Marie. It really seems quite unreal that the day we have been waiting for since our approval to adopt over 2 and 1/2 years ago will soon be arriving, the day we make Hope a part of our family...officially. We are so blessed. Just knowing that the little girl known as Huai Dong Tan who has lived in the orphanage since she was 2 days old will have a family...our family...makes every moment of the long wait just a bump in the road. She will be loved and we are all so thankful to be chosen to share our lives with her.

We already love you Hope, and know in our hearts that God wants you to be our daughter...forever.

The scripture Ronnie chose for the title says it all.

Congratulations on your pending adoption. When you are ready to obtain their finding ad (which has a great photo several months younger than the referral photo!) come visit us at www.Research-China.Org.

Have a great trip!
