I REALLY LOVE China!
I think I've forgotten to mention how much I love this country. I am having a great time despite Sissy's difficulties. The people here at the hotel are friendly and I've already made firm friends with a family from the Bay Area who have adopted the most intelligent, beautiful 9 year old girl. This little girl was in a fantastic foster home and even speaks English! She and Jie Jie have hit it off and love playing together. We'll be able to see them once we're home, too, as they live about 30 minutes away from us!
My good camera battery is charged so I hope to have a lot more pictures to post. Sissy is a bit of an Eliza Doolittle, graceless and awkward right now. Her mouth is always hanging open, she slouches and sticks her neck out, so getting flattering pictures of her is difficult. I've started just taking them as she is now and she's just beginning to realize how she looks as she sees them. I can definitely see the beauty she's going to be with lips like Angelina Jolie and fine bone structure. Her hair is gorgeous, thick and silky, and she's got long slender fingers. She's snoring right now, which makes me laugh as I type this!
