After breakfast, we enjoyed a swim followed by going out to have lunch at a restaurant just around the corner from the hotel. No one there spoke ANY English, so it was up to Sara to once again use her Mandarin and order us something. She did a fine job, though we didn't exactly know what it was she ordered until it got to our table! After lunch we met the other family here from BC that is also adopting. They have 2 bio daughters and have also previously adopted one girl from China (actually only a couple hours drive from here).

She spotted some little riding toys at the back of the room and declared - (yes, in Mandarin, praise the Lord! Sara and her can communicate decently well) that she wanted to go play.

We appreciate the prayers. Tomorrow is another day! That's right - my newest daughter does not like me, though I don't think she actively dislikes me. She doesn't particularly want me to hold her though she will let me. Good news though - she has turned to Sara a couple of times for comfort, which is a great sign! Sara is able to communicate with her in Mandarin and I believe it has helped. I'd best sign off now and try to get a few moments of sleep in case she wakes up once again and is still not happy with her situation!
