Ladybug Picnic in Congers, NY

Those New Yorkers know how to party:

Picnic to be held in Congers for adoptive families of Chinese children
Families who have adopted children from China will gather at Congers Memorial Park tomorrow for the 11th annual Ladybug Picnic.

Sponsored by the Homeland Children's Foundation and Homeland Adoption Services of Nyack, the event is being held around the time of a Chinese festival in which people honor friends and family, said Homeland Board of Directors president Pamela Thomas.

"It's an opportunity for all the families to celebrate together every year," said Thomas, who adopted her daughter from China 12 years ago. "Many of our children came from the same orphanages. Some of them may have shared cribs when they were babies. It's a nice chance for them to get to reconnect once a year."
