This is the emotionally enriching and absolutely true story of two senior citizens, a young baby boy, an unusual governmental program that you probably have never heard of before, and an international adoption. It resulted in the father being charged with felonies in criminal court in one country, and threatened with the same charge in another. It may make you laugh, make you cry, shake your head in disbelief, have you gritting your teeth with frustration, angry at uncaring bureaucrats while at the same time delighted with a few helpful government employees, as well as feeling several other emotions unique to you, but you won’t be bored. For instance, some of the events border on the paranormal, so be prepared for some unexplainable things. You may not be awe-struck by them afterward, but will you be able to easily shrug them off as mere coincidence? Are there things unknown in your philosophy, Horatio? So fix yourself a martini (perhaps even a pitcher) and some popcorn, then get out your crying towels, punching bag, and confetti. Because although this is a tale of truly incredible good fortune, it is also an emotional roller-coaster ride. Spoiler alert: despite all odds, it has a happy ending. At least, so far.
