Church Holds Potluck for Chinese Orphan

South Plainfield couple helping Chinese orphan
Her name is Mei Mei, which in Chinese means Plum Blossom. She is four months old and lives in a Chinese orphange. She was born with a cleft lip and a cleft palate.

To help raise funds for her corrective surgery, members and friends of the Willow Grove Presbyterian Church will have a Chinese potluck dinner and program 6 to 9 p.m. Sept. 8 at the Scotch Plains church.

The church came to know Mei Mei through a 12-year-old member of the church, Amylin DiDario, who was adopted from the same orphanage in China that Mei Mei is in.

Amylin's parents, Paul and Linda DiDario of South Plainfield, adopted Amylin when she was 8 1/2 months old through an adoption agency in Morristown.
