First Thanksgiving

Family particularly grateful for new addition
The Ewings find it hard to put into words how thankful they are to celebrate Thanksgiving with their children, especially their youngest child.

Jocie Ewing, 2, was adopted from China last year and is celebrating her first Thanksgiving with the family. Her parents, Matt and Missy Ewing of Spartanburg, are planning to take Jocie and their other two children to visit family in Indiana this year.

The Ewings spent last Thanksgiving in China, completing Jocie's adoption. They took a riverboat ride and visited the Great Wall, but the holiday just wasn't the same.

"We went to a little pizza shop in China last Thanksgiving," Missy said. "We played darts instead of sitting down to a big dinner."
