Chinese New Year in Missouri

A little late with this story, as CNY was over two weeks ago:

Group hosts annual event for families who adopted - or plan to adopt
In colorful silk blouses and wide grins matching the glow in their dark eyes, more than a dozen children born in China but who have found homes in Mid-Missouri paraded through Concord Baptist Church gymnasium Saturday to celebrate the Chinese New Year with about 85 parents and friends.

The Mid-Missouri Families with Children from China organization has hosted this celebration for the last five years. Not only member families enjoy this opportunity to nurture their children's native culture but also families hoping they will soon have their own additions.
