WE'RE GOING TO CHINA!!!!!!!!!!!!!

IT CAME! IT CAME! OUR TA IS HERE! OH MY GOODNESS! PRAISE GOD!!!!

Kristen called at 2:37 to say that our TA IS HERE!!!! I was home from school all day sick (or maybe just in need of a day off!) I was praying so hard that it would come while I was home... and today so we wouldn't have to wait another week... and GUESS WHAT? IT CAME!!!!

I heard the phone ring and my heart skipped a beat, but we have workers in and out, so I figured it was them. Then I heard Mom screaming and I ran downstairs. I CAN'T BELIEVE IT!!! IT'S HERE!

We prayed that it would come in September... it did! We prayed that we would be able to get there without redoing our visas... yes, that will happen, too! We prayed that it would be sent before the holiday... yep! That, too! GOD IS SOOOOO GOOD!

Our tentative travel dates are October 23-November 5. Still not positive though. We'll have to go a few days early because our visas expire the 22nd.

PRAISING GOD! THANK YOU LORD!!!!!!!!

WE'RE GOING TO CHINA!!!!!!!!!!

We are going to China the same time y'all are with the same agency. Can't wait to meet your family. Just sad to see someone wearing a Longhorn hat. We are all Aggies from Texas.

I just love this picture of Kate and I just love, love that she is finally coming home! Can't wait to follow along on the journey. At least this time I won't have the pressure of family at home saying, "Emily has updated her blog, why haven't you?!"
