With rare candor, adoptive parents speak about the process from the beginning and as they advance, in an intimate, honest and thought-provoking manner. Three stories of journeys with moments of optimism and falls, fear and elation. The film consists of video clips taken by parents during the process. The footage reveals rare and intimate moments, including a peek into the children’s homes in Russia, their first meeting with the child, , arrival to Israel, the meeting with the extended family, and life itself.          The parents share their brave introspective thoughts with the camera with the perspective of years as a family with the child that joined.
