Jamila Gray, 17, and her sister, Elianna Gray, 11, play with some rubber bands that Elianna Gray was given as a gift earlier that day Monday July 12. Elianna Gray was officially adopted by Sarah Gray today who had already adopted her older sister Jamila. Jamila was in foster care with Sarah at the age of 12. "We're a permanent family now," said Sarah Gray. The family came to the Daniel Boone Regional Library in order to attend the opening of the Missouri Heart Gallery, which is a traveling exhibit of photos of foster children in Missouri who are in need of adoptive families.
