Montana Families Picnic

Adoptive familes swap stories at picnic
Joslin Fields' adopted daughter was wrapped in six layers of winter clothes when Chinese adoption officials handed her over in 2003.

“There was only 19 pounds beneath the 25 pound package we were handed,” Fields recalled Sunday. “It was weird, because 2 1/2 years of anticipation led up to this big event.”

Four years later, Fields, 44, and her husband strongly support international adoption and offer their daughter, Cecily Cary, 5, as proof of how well it can turn out.

“They say you're given the child you're meant to have,” Fields said. “She couldn't be more mine.”
