Did I ever tell you how long I wanted to adopt from China before Juergen finally said yes? I was looking at every list of kids I was allowed to look at. Poor Juergen! I would say, "how about her...or her"? I even found a few boys I would have gladly said yes to, even though I realy wanted a girl this time. This went on for a year. Juergen had not even said yes, he wanted to adopt. I planned to take my kids (except Jessica) to the USA for Christmas 2005. I knew I would be at my parents house, so crazy me began to bid on lots of children's cloths on e-bay in the USA. Juergen still had not said yes, but I knew it was going to happen. If he said no, I would have given the cloths away. On March 3RD 2006 Juergen said yes to Sarah. When I get discouraged about weather it's going to work out it helps me to look back and remember I began shopping for her in the fall of 2005. I knew then what I know daughter is in China, and God will absolutely move Mountains to bring her home!
