TA on the WAY!!!

Praise be to God!!! We heard today that our TA is finally on its way from China. The agency expects to get it Monday. The agency is requesting a consulate appointment to allow us to leave on 9/13- next Saturday. The other family who is scheduled to travel with us has INS papers that are about to expire. The agency is hoping that the consulate will squeeze us both in since our daughters are both from Kunming. It is a long shot, but God can do anything! I had all but given up to be there with Ellie for her 2nd birthday on 9/20. If the US consulate is merciful and squeezes us in, we would be with Ellie on her birthday. The hard part is trying not to get my hopes up to leave next Sat. , yet do I start to prepare to leave soon or wait until next Tues. or Wed. when we should know definitively? I don't know what to do except pray for God's will to be done. Please join us in praying.
