LIZE, HERE WE COME............TA has arrived!

That's right, yesterday we received our travel approval. Due to a Chinese holiday Oct 1-3, a couple of weeks of trade shows in Guangzhou and some other issues within the proviences, our travel date will be October 29th (we'll get full confirmation on this date no later than Monday, we hope but it looks as if that will be the date). It's not as soon as we wanted but we finally have a date to get our little angel.

Thank you all for your prayers and support. We hope that you keep them up until we get to Lize and bring her back home. We'll keep the blog updated with travel information and such once we have confirmed information.

Birthday Celebrations

We celebrated Sofi and Will's birthday this week (Sofi's birthday is Sept 23rd -she's 3 - and Will's birthday is Sept 25th -he's 8). Our little ones are growing up too fast. We also hoped to be with Lize on her birthday (Oct 3rd) but that's not going to happen. We took the kids to a restaurant that you could classify as a very upscale chuck e cheese.

I will post some pictures of them later but here's a couple of photos of Sofi that were taken yesterday:

G-Town Hawks 1-0

Zach is playing 7th grade football and his primary position is as a running back. Satruday was his first game and the team won 14-0. Here's some pictures of him before and during the game. (The photo from the game is Zach getting the ball for the run):

LOA finally here - (and some updated photos)

Well, we finally got our LOA (which is our approval to travel from China). We expect to be on our way in a few weeks to get our little Lize. We'd like to thank everyone for their prayers and support and we'll keep you posted on specific dates once we get more information.

For now, here's a general update from The Newsome's. We just returned from our annual trip to nothern Wisconsin. It's 3 nights/4 days of great fun, relaxation spent with friends at one of our most favorite spots in the world. Here's some photos from our trip (Will's big thing was horse back riding) - of course getting pics of Zach was difficult:
