The Orphan Keeper Review – Astounding, Inspirational, Remarkable

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

The Orphan Keeper, from Shadow Mountain Publishing, tells an epic story of a boy kidnapped from India, sold to an orphanage and adopted to the United States over 8,000 miles away and the miracle that would follow.

Written by Cameron Wright as told to him by Taj Rowland, this epic journey begins in the impoverished city of Erode, India, in the countryside away from the city, with a child, Chellamuthu, whose earliest memories are of foraging for food, sleeping on a woven mat on a dirt floor, often going to bed hungry, with, in his own words, “hunger as his constant companion.”

One day, as the story unfold, he is on an errand for his mother and is approached by three men who befriend him, his memory of the reason for the sudden friendship is unclear, food, money, a fabricated tale of his mom needing him. As it is the three walked with him for a moment and then snatched him off the dirt road and tossed him in the back of a van.

As the story is told, he walked out of his home and, like so many that go missing, on every continent, in every city in the world, never return.

Three hours later, he is delivered to an orphanage where the process of adoption is initiated. And on the other side of the world, at the same time, a family, Fred and Linda Rowland, in Utah is praying for another child. The desire, as it was told, was for a dark-haired child. The Rowland’s, a couple who believe in the principals and teaching of Jesus Christ, began the search and found a picture of Chellamuthu, and immediately began the process of adoption.

The path of destiny, like love, never runs smooth and at 3:00am, the American Consulate in Madras, India explaining the child they had decided on was not the child they were getting. The little girl they had been told they would be getting was a little boy. Chellamuthu, the child being prepared to send to the states, was not a two-year-old girl, his actual age was seven, eight or nine, birth records were unavailable and did they still want him? And if yes, the decision had to be made in a couple of hours.

Linda Rowland, the soon to be adoptive mother, explains they decided each would separate, pray and in a 30 minutes later return with a decision. The two did and Fred explains he felt a burden a responsibility to bring that child to the United States.

Suddenly a child with memories of a life, a mother, father, brothers, was on a plane arriving in Utah. The story continues with quick decisions to immediately have Taj begin sports, school, the Boy Scouts to help him adjust and build friends.

This is where the shock of the truth unveils itself as these pieces of an incredible, unbelievable journey begin to solidify. Taj earns a ribbon for wrestling and is featured in the local newspaper and tells his adoptive mother to send the ribbon to his India mom. She explains it “he said send it to my India mom.”

The Rowland's were devastated as they believed he was genuinely orphaned with no memories so as they tried to set the record straight and if necessary return Taj to the home he was taken from, they hit brick wall after brick wall, even after receiving a letter to the same effect.

The Orphan Keeper is a book of love and light. The story that unfolds as Taj continues his life in the United States is one that only a higher power, God, could orchestrate.

The letter, when examined some fifteen years later, brings into view what was unseen so many years before. As the now adult Taj reads the letter, new and stunning insights to his family come to light.

In India, a child goes missing every eight minutes, according to data from the National Crime Records Bureau. Children are often kidnapped from their homes, forced into the unknown, some even sold for profit to unknowing families abroad seeking to adopt. While a shocking number of these children disappear, never to make it home, this is the story of a boy who does.

The Orphan Keeper is uplifting, hopeful and speaks hope to the hearts of the lost and wounded who are seeking just to know that God or a higher power ever watchful, in the darkness ever guiding, moving time, pieces, hearts, people together for a greater good, is watching over them.

The Orphan Keeper, a remarkable story, has been reviewed in nearly every major publication in the United States and around the world. The journey is one that shouts of divine intervention, of destiny.

The Orphan Keeper is available on Amazon in traditional book format and in Kindle and Audio CD.
