It was a red-letter day for someone.
Someone who has wanted to be “the one” to go to China with his mama for as long as he can remember.
Someone who has become responsible, helpful and mature enough for this mama to actually want him to come along.
And someone who, if his passport arrives in time, will finally get to go to China. And bring home his baby sister.
I’m hoping that when they say 2 -3 weeks, what they really mean is 2 weeks.
I just can’t imagine disappointing this boy.
Ohhhhh…so happy for Dalton!! He will be a wonderful travel mate!!
Awe. I hope so too! We’ll pray with you that it arrives on time!
Mrs. Baker says
aww that would be so special! hope it works out!!!
Cedar/ Joyful Mama says
Do you know when you are going? Exciting! Our kids passports came very quickly…even less than two weeks from when we applied and we did not ask for speed at all. (Only the oldest will travel with us, but we got passports for all 3 just in case…)
That is so awesome. I hope they hurry.
Oh how I hope for your sweet boy’s sake that his passport arrives on time!!
i am sure it will make it in time. We did one at the last minute for one of our kiddos and it got here really quick
Lots of love and prayers that he can go to China with you to pick up his newest baby sister. Can’t wait to see your trip unfold.
Our sons passport came within7-10 days so praying your sons comes just that fast. How exciting for him.
Sarah Van Grunsven says
YAY Dalton! Here’s praying it comes quickly!
Kim Swales says
I will say a prayer right now:) Hope it comes.
Amy Meeker says
Ahhhh! I love that. I’ll pray that the passport comes in time!
YAY!!! He will be a wonderful travel companion!!
I am so happy for all of you!!
Prayin it’s 2 weeks!!
Contact your senator or representative. They can help with this. We once had to get our girls’ passports in a hurry, and we were treated with such kindness when we called to get help on this!
prayers up! And now we know his middle name. 😛 xoxo
BTDT except it was for 3 of our children. BTW, did you choose expedite? We ponied up b/c we honestly just let the time go by and failed miserably at getting those ordered in time. And they came in ONE WEEK but that was with the expedite. I think you’ll be fine!!! So excited you are so close and still SHOCKED you kept such a big secret (from your blog) so long! Sneaky you are! 😉
It’ll make it easy – God’s cool like that!
Dalton – buckle up – you are in for the trip of a lifetime!
And your middle name is a “family” name in our clan – carried by many as a first or middle name – and fine men all!
hugs – aus and co.

I’ve been waiting to see who you would take!
How is Poppy going to handle you being gone?
Cindy M says
I’ll keep that in my prayers! He’s so darned handsome…what a sweet photo. I just know that passport is going to come in time!

When we apllied for the boys passports in December we got them in like 7 days. It was quick!!!!!!! Hoping the same for your sweet boy.
ahhh, having just taken our Dawson who is 11……I so so so hope D’s passport comes in time!
We just did passports (not expedited). One was a renewal & one was a first time issue. It took 3 weeks……
We just got the passports for our kids today (3/1). Mailed out on 2/16. So, 2 1/2 wks for us. 2 were renewals and 1 was new and they all arrived on the same day. Hope it’s speedy for you too!
