Older Child Adoption

This is the testimony of a Liberian orphan adopted at the age of 14 years old. He's a little difficult to understand, but listen closely to what he says was the best part of coming to America (I'll give you the answer: he said it was having 3 meals a day). He also mentions the hopelessness he felt as he prayed over and over again for a family to pick him and the joy he had when he learned he finally had a family.
