Soon we will be going to a reunion involving many children adopted from China. I'm going to try leaving Alice in the creche so that I can attend an adult only seminar.

I woke at around 2am this morning, panicking. I was panicking that the creche workers wouldn't return Alice into my custody as I'd identified her as 'the Chinese child.' I find that Alice is very noticeable and memorable in our local community as it is so racially uniform so I don't have to say any more than that for people to know who she (or we) are.

(Added after the weekend - I didn't leave Alice in the creche so the situation never arose and now I will work on a more PC description of my daughter and our family.)
