Isn't this a cute 5 year old? Here is her adoption information. Her special need is Hepatitis B. Sarah is also Hep B +. Juergen and I thought about weather we should tell people about her SN. Many parents advise you to keep the information to your selves. Some people get nervous about being around people with an infectious disease. We felt like most of our friends and family already knows, most people already have a vaccination agent the disease. Many children on the waiting lists have this special need. We find it pretty easy to manage. We hope that our being open will help encourage other families to consider adopting a Hep B+ child. I'm hoping the people I know in Germany will not show any prejudice towards us or Sarah. We hope that we are not making a mistake by being open about this...but that our openness will help others. Anyway, I will be writing what I know about Hep B over the next few days.
