Our Travel Approval Arrived Today!!!

Our Travel Approval arrived today!!!

This is a HUGE step towards getting to China.   With our I171H + VISA in hand, our Adoption Agency can now request an appointment with the US Consulate in Guanghzhou.   Once our appointment is set, airline tickets can be booked!!  We are still on track to arriving in Jiangxi before Eva's 1st Birthday.    Thanks for keeping us in prayer.  We'll keep you posted.


  1. Woohoo!!! That is AWESOME!! We are excited and rejoice with you as the journey continues. Know that we continue to join with many in prayer as you both and Eva prepare for this special adventure. We realize that many things still need to come together so we'll pray for smooth transitions as well. Love u guys!! Yeah, baby, it's happening!!

  2. Greetings to the Baltes Family! Just wanted you to know we prayed for your travel plans and your meeting today. Love you - Christie and Roy

  3. October 25th was our 5-year "Gotcha Day" anniversary. Hard to believe Rachel XingQing has been with us for 5 years already. Where does the time go. Oct. 25 must be a very good day in China! : ) So much fun to follow you on this journey. I'm taking my journey all over again! What joy!
