Well, we finally got the call on Wednesday, October 17th, the referral we have been waiting for!!A little boy named Turat who was born on April 2, 2007. However, our kids and us felt a since of uncertainty after looking at the medical history and being buried in medical terms that we didn't understand. All I can say is thank God for the internet. After a few days on the internet I felt we had a better handle on the medical history. We then made an appointment with a pediatric Dr. specializing in adoptions, and the adoption agency made request for a few more medical test to be done. We then received a video of Turat on Tuesday October 23rd. We all instantly fell in love with him. Turat was smiling, responding to voices and toys, holding his head up, rolling, and even getting up on all fours, (much to all our amazement). After a week and a half of waiting for the test results we heard the news that we were waiting for. The heart condition that Turat has, which is a defect of the interventricular septum, wasn't that bad. He has just a small hole in the wall that separates the right and left ventricles. The Dr. said it may heal on its own as he gets older, and if not it will take a common heart procedure to close it up. We accepted Turat into our hearts and our family on October 26. We are now praying for a quick court date and travel dates. I know time will be going so slow now, but I can't wait to see what God is going to do. We have already seen so much of his hand in this process.
