Meeting My Son Cosmas for the First Time in Kenya

Have You Seen This?

Denalee Chapman February 24, 2015

A long and hope-filled journey to Kenya. An ecstatic, loving father. A sweet young son. This video — filled to the brim with emotion and joy — is something special.

Watch as the adorable little Cosmas, from Kenya, wonders what on earth is going on in this “first time meeting” video. But his father’s excitement and love and energy — beautifully unbridled after a long trip to Kenya — seep through everything that is going on around them.

In a wonderful celebration from the entire group, including singing, Cosmas and his father begin their incredible and lifelong journey together. From Kenya to home.
