homecoming // we are the park family 5

December 21, 2010

Our friends, JT & Grace Park, recently adopted a baby boy from Korea and asked if we would come along to capture their Family Day–the day baby Joel would arrive and officially become a member of the Park family.

Because of the paperwork, it was anyone’s guess as to when he would arrive in the states. We were literally “on call” for a week, eagerly anticipating the big day.

When we arrived at the airport, we were greeted by the Park Family–their whole family. JT & Grace’s two children donned shirts that read “older brother” and “older sister in Korean and their cousins held up homemade welcome signs.

While the grandparents prepped bottles and gifts, JT & Grace nervously and incessantly checked flight monitors to see if Joel had arrived . The look of anticipation on these expecting parents’ faces was so beautiful.

When it comes to creating our films, we are all about the story. Sometimes we can tell a story in a couple of minutes–maybe even a few seconds. Those who frequent this blog are probably in habit of liking short videos. This video, however, is decidedly longer, because we wanted to make sure we told their story in its fullness. So if you have a few minutes, please, take a seat, and enjoy.  You really won’t regret it.

Happy Holidays,


PS – If you’d like to find out more about Joel, and how he’s getting along in their family, you can follow the Park’s on their blog :]
