God answered prayers and we now know when we will be traveling.  Our Consulate appointment is scheduled for October 17th at 8:30 am.  We won’t be able to tour Beijing at the beginning of the trip because of the National Day holiday so we will have to do that at the end.  We will be leaving on Saturday October 8th and returning home on Friday October 21st.  We will finally meet our little guy on Monday October 10th!!!  It won’t be a day too soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The SWI also sent new pictures to Living Hope today.  We weren’t expecting that so it was a nice surprise.  He doesn’t look quite as “clean” and “smiley” as the last pictures we got, but soon enough he will be ours and hopefully we can see that precious smile every day.
