Travel Approval!!

We found out yesterday around noon that we received Travel Approval from China! It came 16 days after Article 5, and because of this, we were able to get it before Chinese New Year.


We received confirmation just this morning of our visa appointment at the US consulate in Guangzhou. This is the LAST piece of information we needed, and now our travel dates are SET!

We leave for China in 12 days! I can barely fathom how much I need to get done before then. Thankfully, I had started preparing some things, just in case this happened.

More updates to come - for now we just wanted to share the good news :)


  1. Wow!! Great news!! God is so good!

  2. Yaaay!!!! I was thinking of and praying for you off and on yesterday! I am so happy for you. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help. This is such an amazing, surreal time (and I'm not going to lie, I'm a little jealous!) If there is anything we have that you need / want to take with you, you need only ask! God bless you as you start the final leg of *this part* of the adoption process -- the end of the beginning!

  3. Happy Chinese New year to the Sprang family!!! If there is any way we can help just let us know!

  4. That's AMAZING! I totally did not expect you guys to travel until March. Oh me of little faith! Congrats guys!
