A picture is worth a 1000 words. I have been studying the new pictures of Sarah. Here are some of my thoughts. First, she is eating in her bed, not at a table like we do in our family. Even my sons (both adopted from a large children s home in Thailand) sat at tables to eat. She has her head shaved. It is very hot in Nanjing in the summer time. I wonder if they have air conditioning? I know they also shave their heads to control lice. She is wearing rags for a diaper. Is she toilet trained? She looks clean and pretty healthy. She does have what looks like bites on her ankles. Maybe Mosquitoes? She also has drawings on the wall behind her. My daughter Nicole (now almost 13 years old) drew on walls when she was 3 years old.
