Massachusetts Reunion

Drawn together
Yarmouthport fifth-grader Eva Lin Fahey, who was adopted from China a decade ago with seven other girls, got to meet her ''sisters'' for the first time as pre-teens this weekend when all the girls and their families - 39 people in total - gathered at the Cape Codder Resort & Spa for a reunion...

The girls were between 8 and 10 months old when they were adopted in 1996 through a Brookline agency, China Adoption with Love, according to Eva's mother, Jean Ciborowski Fahey. She was one of three single women who flew with five married couples from Boston to China.

In the city of Wuhan, the capital of Hubei province, the soon-to-be parents waited for the girls to be brought to them, each from a separate orphanage in the province. They came back to the United States with the girls 10 days later.

The families, all but one of whom live in Massachusetts, got together when the girls were 4, and again this year.
