His family thought he was dead. For over fifteen years, James lived on the streets of Little Rock, Arkansas. What an incredible story behind this family reunion.

Jodi and his wife, Dawn Gieber, live in Little Rock. Jodi works in law enforcement and Dawn works inside the courthouse. Over the 15 years that James had been living on the streets of Little Rock, Jodi and Dawn would see him often. Really wanting to know his story, Dawn asked James one simple question, "why are you homeless?"

James told of how he lost his way, lost contact with his family and after all these years he had no idea how to even find out where any of his family was. So moved by his story, Dawn and Jodi decided they needed to help James reunite with his family. Watch the video below to hear the story of how this Arkansas couple changed a man's life.
