Each couple is awaiting the arrival of an adopted infant daughter from Korea. After the babies from distant Asia are delivered, Bitsy Donaldson impulsively invites the Yazdans to celebrate with an “arrival party,” an event that is repeated every year as the two families become more deeply intertwined. Register to attend virtually or in person at hooverlibrary.org. Registration is not required to attend in person. Call 205-444-7820 for more information. LOCATIONS: Adult Program Room, Zoom Room 2
