Asian Culture Celebration in Pittsburgh

Adoptive families embrace Asian culture
For three years, Amy Min Gong has taught Chinese language and culture to children born in China and adopted by local families.

Gong believes it is important for these children to know their heritage, and she teaches them Chinese music and dances, along with colors and numbers. Gong, who was born in China and came to America 20 years ago, teaches Mandarin, the most widely spoken of the Chinese dialects...

"I would like them to know the traditions and their backgrounds," said Gong. "These kids are very interested in where they come from, what they look like."
