Adopted From Ethiopia — A Pictorial Journey

Have You Seen This?

Denalee Chapman January 29, 2015

Adopted from Ethiopia, this is the pictorial journey of Josiah’s family. The video depicts their anticipation and excitement of welcoming Josiah home. But it is more than that.  It is also Josiah’s journey of being welcomed into a new, complete, happy life. This happy child — full of smiles — brings light and brightness to everyone who sees him.

“The loneliness ends and a new life begins, when love takes you in,” sings Steven Curtis Chapman, as we watch Josiah and his wonderful family.
