Meet the (foster) parents

Joseph “Lopez” Lomong is a United States Olympic 1500-meter runner, and was the choice as the flag bearer of the United States at the Beijing Olympics Opening Ceremony.

Below is an interview featuring Robert and Barbara Rogers, who took in six Sudanese refugees in their home.  Lopez Lomong was the first of these “Lost Boys” from Sudan to enter their life and forever changed it.

He came from the lowest wrung in a third world nation. And what he’d seen in the world, this broke every rule… why don’t you talk to your friends back home?  Don’t you want to tell them about your life in America?  He said, “They could not believe me.  They just have no frame to realize how every single American lives.” He’s made us see our world a little different…

(Robert Rogers, foster parent of Lopez Lomong)
