All's going well

My Dad came through surgery just fine--he had his heart surgery two days ago and today he has all his tubes out, is up walking around, and eating real food. The Doctors say he is doing perfect. He will be in the hospital a few more days and then recovering at my house. My thanks go out to all those praying for or thinking of him and our family.
The adoption blogs have been busy lately. There is lots of discussion about long timelines and about medical conditions in the children of Kazakhstan. Sometimes it is scary and depressing to read about it all (how long I may have to wait or what medical problems the child may have) but the happy stories outweigh the others. I do think it is important to be informed and know what you can be getting into so I am reading and researching. After a day or two of researching and obsessing about what could go wrong, I felt that all would be okay--I will cling to that feeling and trust that the perfect child for me will be found. I wish that for all those out there waiting for a child and I know with patience, faith, and some hard work we will have the families we desire.--I just hope it comes soon.(so much for patience).

I am glad to hear about your father. Its very frightening to have someone you love in pain or have difficult surgery. Thinking about you...
