Storyful Published May 28, 2017 140 Plays

Rumble In September 2016, Elijah Thomas traveled to Atlanta, Georgia, and knocked on his biological father’s house, without giving prior notice. It would be the first time that Elijah had ever met his real dad, at the age of 23.

The video is taken from Elijah’s documentary Lucky Bastards, which shows what it’s like when adopted children meet their biological parents.

The clip is, as you expect, extremely emotional and, despite reservations from both his adopted parents and birth mother, Elijah decided to go and meet his real father.
