Stay Cool This Summer When it is hot outside, our bodies also become hot, espe- cially when working or playing outdoors. By taking some sim- ple precautions, we can reduce marathon. Another way to increase your fluid intake is to choose foods with high water content such as lettuce, pears, tomatoes, oranges, apples, green beans, corn and bananas. Perspiring is one way the body loses water. Dehydration occurs when we lose more flu- ids than we consume. Common symptoms include fatigue, headaches, dry nasal passages, cracked lips and overall dis- comfort. Dehydration may occur more rapidly in elderly people. It is a leading cause for hospitalization of people older than 65. You still can enjoy the great outdoors by taking some simple precautions. When possible, reduce or eliminate strenuous activities in the heat of the day; schedule them for a cool time of day. Dress to help your body maintain its normal tempera- ture. Light-weight, light-col- ored clothing reflects heat and sunlight. Sunburn makes heat dissipa- tion more difficult and is a high- risk factor in skin cancer devel- opment. If you must be outside, use a sunscreen with a skin pro- tection factor of at least 15 and wear a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses.

Educational programs of the Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service serve all peo- ple regardless of race, color, age, sex, religion, disability or girls) are also abandoned because most parents in China don't have the money to provide for their "special needs." Once found, the abandoned babies are given a medical exam and then taken to orphanages. Lydia has a birthmark called a "hemangioma," which will need medical attention in the near future and because of this, was considered a "special needs" child. Adoption Procedures The government office responsible for adoptions in China is the Ministry of Civil Affairs, specifically the CCAA, Your adoption agency must sub- mit adoption applications, along with dossiers, directly to the CCAA (in other words, your agency shouldn't use an inter- mediary). Once the application for adoption is approved, the CCAA will then match the application with a child whose paperwork has been forwarded to the CCAA by a provincial Civil Affairs Bureau. once a child is identified, the CCAA will send a letter of introduction about the child, photographs, and a health record of the child through the U.S. adoption agency to the prospective adop- tive parent(s). To finalize the adoption, the prospective adop- tive parent(s) need to travel to China to complete the process. American parents do not have to travel to Beijing for approval. The CCAA will have already forwarded a copy of the adoption approval notice to the both say, 'she's our miracle' --from front page-- province where the child resides. Americans adopting in China commonly meet with a notary in the provincial capital for an informal interview. (A Chinese notary is not the same thing as a Notary Public in the United States; a Chinese notary is an official with broad-ranging responsibilities.) A translator supplied by the Child Welfare Institute is usually present at the interview. Questions commonly asked of th, prospective adop- tive parent(s) include: Why are you adopting a Chinese child? Do you have any children now (either adopted or birth)? What is your family back- ground? Why do you not have Chil- dren? How can you assure us that the adopted child will be well treated? After the interview is com- pleted, the actual adoption and completion of the contract (including making a fixed "donation" of around $3,000 to $4,000 to the Children's Welfare Institute - this donation is NOT a bribe, but is required for the adoption and completion of con- trac0, take place Prospective parents must be at least 35 years-old. Single adoptive parents (both, women and men) are eligible to adopt from China. However, the total number of applications from singles is strictly limited and adoption by homosexuals is "not welcomed."

When choosing other fluids consider the caf- feine and sugar content Sweetened drinks add calories and the sugar draws fluids away from the muscles where water is needed. Alternatives are fruit juices, decaffeinated iced tea, herbal tea or coffee, carbonated water and unsweetened sports drinks. Drinking water is the best way to replace fluids unless you are under strenuous exer- cise or conditions such as a adopters may be asked to sign an affidavit stating they are bet- erosexual. Travel is required for one parent, although both parents are strongly urged to travel. One trip is required; the trip length averages two weeks. From the time you fill out your initial application until you bring your child home, averages about 18 to 20 months. Adoption of older and "special needs" children usually takes less time In Tim and Cathy's case, they went through an agency in Lexington called Helping Hands, with the help of Loft Ferguson, who had adopted two girls from China and a boy from Cambodia. For further information on the Helping Hands organization, call toll-free in Lexington, KY, at 1-800-525-0871.

"When we went on the Web site to look at the kids with 'spe- cial needs,' we looked under the American names given to the children. The adoption agency said it was easier for them to keep track of the names, if it was an American name. We saw "Lydia" and decided she was the one we wanted. I had bought a quilt to give to her, not knowing what her name was going to be, but later found out that Lydia, in the Bible, was associated with the color purple. And the quilt I had bought for the new baby had a lot of purple in it." "I believe God had a hand in everything we did, to make Lydia a part of our family." As if on cue, Lydia laughed and ran head-long into her Grandma's arms. Lydia may have had a very sad and tragic start, but you can bet her life now will be one of joy for both her and her new parents in the years to come "l for temporary positions for overnights as well as days for remodeling.
