Taj Rowland’s story is one that must be told. Though it stems from a foreign land with unfamiliar smells, sounds, and textures, it is a story that everyone can relate to. It is a story of a lost boy, searching for his home and his family. It is a story of tragedy, and a story of hope.
Taj spent eighteen years in pursuit of his true identity—and through God’s whispers, he was led home. The fact that this short video clip exists is miraculous. Most of the main characters were played by Taj’s biological family members: people he never knew, but ached to know. By God’s grace, Taj now knows them. He was able to watch as the very people and village he was stolen from were able to reenact his kidnapping. It was an emotional scene for an adult Taj to witness and to remember. So many emotions were brought to the surface: fear, sadness, loneliness, but also gratitude and joy. He had been on a miraculous journey, far from home. Yet, here he was, back where it all began.
