THANK YOU, GOD!!!


RockYou PhotoFX - Get Your Own





Today was an amazing day ~ a great day!!!

Mia had her cardiologist appointment and we got the best news!!! Her VSD has been closing and is now the size of a pin!

The doctor said he was honestly worried after looking over the medical papers from China on Mia's heart condition. According to these papers (which were dated when she was 9 months old) her hole was huge, the size of a nickel; and he was concerned she was living like this for the last 20 months.

Well, after reviewing her echocardiogram (it took my mom and I to hold poor screaming Mia down) he was thrilled to present us with this wondeful news!!

He wants to see Mia back in 6 months and does not anticipate the hole reopening (please no! I didn't even realize this could happen!).

I keep thinking over when we were reviewing Mia's profile and medical - we were told by many professionals, "you need updated information before accepting this referral, you cannot go on blind faith alone"...I was so confused because I knew in my heart that this was our daughter; but how do you take such a chance?? Well, I did have faith (or blind faith) and felt in my heart that this is right and that this is our Mia ~ wow!!

My poor little tiger had 3 doctor appointments this week - and boy was she ticked off! Monday was the pediatrician, Wednesday was the lab for bloodwork and today! You made it through, little girl with flying colors!!! (Keep fingers crossed that the blood & stool tests are this wonderful!!)

AWESOME NEWS -- yours is the second blog today I read that had their little girl with the same condition find out from their doctor that their little girl is okay as well - WONDERFUL NEWS and trusting your faith is a good thing - without that trust, Mia wouldn't be in your arms. I'm sooo happy for you.

I'm so glad to hear this good news - What a relief! I feel for her (and you!) with all those tests in one week. That's no fun. But worth it to know that her heart is healing! I can't help but wonder what percentage of the healing took place since you've been united? What a beautiful thing it is to follow your heart the way you did. All is as it should be.
Love, Miriam

Her heart isn't 'broken' anymore because she has a family now. This baby had NO hope or future in China. That alone could break anyone's heart. She is now loved and happy. Her heart is fixed. Makes sense to me....

Congratulations Jo! This is such great news!! I truly believe in fate, and I think it's because her heart is full now, and feels all the love from her new family. This is a big relief, and a cause for celebration!

Oh my gosh-I have goosebumps. That is fantastic news. I hope the upcoming appointments bring the same. Mia is adorable. Here is to "blind faith" something we all have in the China Adoption Community.
