This is the piece of paper our guide gave me to show people Sarah was my newly adopted daughter. It basically says I just adopted her and I love her but she does not like me. We had to show it many times in Shanghai.That was one of the lowest moments of my life! Unfortunately I would probably still need to show it to people if I was alone with her in China. I think she is a little sick. It is bed time. She has a small fever. Her throat is sore and sounds really horse. She is crying for Juergen. She will not even accept a cup of water from me. He must leave the house at 8am tomorrow morning. I am going to try hard not to take her rejection personally, but what do I do when she is sick and will not let me care for her? I also have Jessica tomorrow. I can not say I am looking forward to tomorrow! I'm sorry for our little sweetheart if she will not receive my care. I will once again be all she has. I hope she at least feels healthy in the morning.
