Tami Herman smiled broadly while watching her new daughter pass from aunt to uncle to grandparent on arrival home from their adoption trip to Vietnam, May 15. Tami and her husband Jason finalized 6-month-old Olivia’s adoption from Kien Giang Province almost 33 years after Tami was escorted from Vietnam to the same St. Louis airport to be adopted by her Missouri parents.
