Adoption Reunion in Branson, Missouri

Adopted Chinese children, families gather in Branson
A group of Branson entertainers are trying to ensure that a number of adopted children remember their roots.

The New Shanghai Theatre held its first reunion for American families from all over the United States who have adopted Chinese-born children.

Lizhi Zhao, the theater’s owner, said through an interpreter, that he was inspired to hold the event to help teach the adopted children about their heritage.

“This event is something we hope to make bigger and better each year, inviting more and more families,” Zhao said. “Eventually, when it gets big enough, we want to make it a day such as the ones that honor veterans.”
