Man Tracks Down Birth Parents, Can't Hide Tears When He Meets His Dad

This is the touching story of a New Zealand man who met his birth father for the first time. Alex Gilbert, 25, grew up in Whangarei on New Zealand's North Island after being adopted from Arkhangelsk in Russia at a very young age, was first informed about his birth father by his birth mother in 2013. Alex decided he wanted to meet his father and tracked him down all the way to Russia. Amazingly, his father had no idea that Alex even existed! Mr Gilbert was born on April 1, 1992 to Tatiana Gusovskaia and Mihail Kovkov. Mr Gilbert and his brother Andrei were adopted by New Zealanders Mark and Janice Gilbert in 1994. His father Mr Kovov wasn't aware he had a son until Mr Gilbert contacted him through social media in 2013. This brave man managed to track down his birth parents through social media with just his birth mother's name and the address of his Russian orphanage. Eventually, he found out the identity of his father and flew to Russia to meet him. When Alex first contacted Mihail, who didn’t even know he existed, he thanked his adoptive parents for raising him and he still does to this day. This video shows their special bond and also shows how their family has grown since they met for the first time in 2013. Alex is very thankful for his birth father letting him into his life. These two share a special bond and their lives have changed for the better since they met! http://instagram.com/alexgilbert http://facebook.com/nzalexgilbert http://twitter.com/alexgilbertnz Note: I own all copyright for my videos.
