Description

In late December, 2012, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a bill banning all American adoptions of Russian children. Americans have adopted hundreds of children from Russia each year, providing hope and love to those languishing in Russia's overstressed orphanage system. Protests against this new law have erupted in both the United States and Russia. How this controversy will be resolved remains to be seen. What can be seen is the power of life-giving love exhibited by those who have successfully adopted in the past. Bringing Joshua Home tells the personal story of one family who successfully adopted a Russian child. Arthur and Hanna Rasco share the challenges, joys, and drama of adopting their baby boy from Moscow and introducing him into their family. If you've ever wondered what it is like to adopt internationally, this film gives an inside, real-life look into the process from start to finish.

Editorial Reviews

Very well done documentary on adopting Joshua from Russia. This did take place BEFORE late December 2012, when Russian Presiden Vladimir Putin signed a bill banning all American adoptions of Russian children.

The statistics are staggering…estimates between 700,000 to 2,000,000 orphans in Russia.

This story is about changing the world for 1 little boy…Joshua! This family has done their part in becoming an solution to the problem. We pray this catches on for all children everywhere to be adopted into God fearing, loving families!

I LOVED the picture of organization of the mom when getting ready to leave for yet another trip to Russia. If you don’t pay attention you might miss it. It takes place while they are giving instructions to the grandfather.

My nephew is in the process of adopting a child named Alex from the Ukraine. The rules there haven’t changed thankfully. I can’t wait to meet the 2 newest additions to their family…they recently had a baby boy named Artemis as well.

I believe if you are considering adopting outside the US, this would be a great video to watch.

This short documentary looks at the lengthy and costly process of adopting a Russian orphan—a complex business, especially if the prospective parents happen to be American. The subject of Bringing Joshua Home is North Carolina couple Arthur and Hanna Rasco's adoption of baby Joshua from a Moscow orphanage, which occurred before Russian president Vladimir Putin signed into law a bill banning U.S. adoptions of his country's children in December 2012. Made by the Rascos, the film chronicles the numerous obstacles to gaining legal custody of Joshua, which required multiple trips to Russia at the couple's expense. Viewers witness that drawn-out process here step-by-step, as scenes build suspense about the ultimate outcome while also capturing the Rascos' drive and love. Even if adopting Russian children is currently no longer an option for Americans, this heartwarming documentary could inspire some to look to other nations where youngsters without families hope to find a real home. Highly recommended.
