The last hurdle we needed to cross is now behind us.
At 3:37pm this afternoon, CCAI emailed us with the news that at long last we have Travel Approval–which is the Chinese government’s official invitation to come to China and bring the kids home.
We have been given the travel options of departing the US on July 9-11 or July 16-18. The official date of departure will be determined once the US Consulate in Guangzhou confirms our Consulate Appointment date. We won’t be able to purchase flights until we have this appointment.
Our heads are spinning. We give thanks to God for this news today on the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, a devotion that holds a special place in my heart and whose novena we have been praying for the past 9 days.
O Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in You.
Praise be Jesus Christ–now and forever!
