9-year-old boy holds his foster brother in his arms for the first time and can't hold back his tears

May 06, 2021 • By Alison Forde

When a child is born it  always brings forth unique emotions for the whole family and for all the people dear to and close to the new parents. The same certainly applies to adoptions: the arrival of a new family member should always be celebrated properly! Although these are two moments lived differently, especially by the mother who, in one case, does not have to endure the pains of childbirth, we are always still talking about an experience that literally changes life. An experience that makes parents! For the young Lander, however, the arrival of a child in his family meant officially becoming an older brother. In a video released on Instagram, the 9-year-old boy, Lander, holds his adoptive brother in his arms for the first time and lets go of a river of emotions.

The adoption process varies from country to country, but it still remains a long and exhausting process that, in some cases, does not even succeed. For little Rowan, born in the summer of 2020, fortunately, things all went well, even though his beautiful new adoptive family had to wait many months before they could hug him and take him home with them. When the adoption was finally made official, all the family members reacted with intense joy to see little Rowan. Lander, in particular, had the sweetest reaction of all: as he held his little brother in his arms for the first time ever, he burst into sobs and tears of happiness.

Now, Lander is officially Rowan's older brother and having the good fortune to hold him tightly in his arms has made him the happiest child in the world. Lander is only 9 years old, but he is already aware of his emotions and what it means to deal with a life as fragile and beautiful as that of his little brother. While he cradles him, the mother films the scene, proud of her two children.

Let yourself be moved by this scene full of love ... we are sure that a tear of emotion will fall!
