Video: Meeting Our Sons in Rwanda

Have you seen this?

Denalee Chapman April 24, 2015

Adopting their children from Rwanda’s Mother Teresa’s Home of Hope, the Dorbands couldn’t have been more excited. Recorded and shared here is everything from their first meeting with their sons. These darling boys responded well to the first meeting. Sometimes, it’s less than a positive first experience for the orphans who are being held by complete strangers.  But for the parents, it is almost always instantaneous bonding and love. This touching video shows an immediate trust and acceptance by these boys with their parents.

“Home at last” is what comes to mind when seeing these boys being held, not only in their parents’ arms, but also in their hearts.
