That moment...

When your adopted child rouses from post surgery anesthesia on a vent searching frantically with his eyes... And his meet yours... And his whole body softens and relaxes and he squeezes your finger and slowly and peacefully closes his eyes again...

Yeah, that moment...

Worth every penny, every sleepless night, every hardship....

  2. I can't imagine how it must feel to watch him like this, but as you said, it's must feel so worth all the hours of waiting, to see him take comfort in your presence.

    Still praying for a quick recovery for Henry!
