He Shall Appear From Nowhere
On April 15, 2006, a red-headed, 46-year-old American executive drove Highway 101 through the coastal fog with three children abandoned by fieldworkers and felons asleep beneath blankets quick lit by the haloed high-beams of passing cars and trucks.

On April 15, 2006, a red-headed, 46-year-old American executive drove Highway 101 through the coastal fog with three children abandoned by fieldworkers and felons asleep beneath blankets quick lit by the haloed high-beams of passing cars and trucks. Under a crescent pearl moon, the migrant family of four bid farewell to Santa Barbara County and their past. He Shall Appear From Nowhere is a haunting and deeply human chronicle of four strangers turned family and the brutality, obstacles, and discrimination they rebuff with grit, humor, and purpose. A multi-ethnic odyssey, He Shall Appear From Nowhere obliterates the traditional distinctions between race, gender, and class, and transforms today's prosaic immigration debate into a spinning kaleidoscope. A single parent, David doesn't have a clue about what children need or what fathers are supposed to do. As he ventures where few men have gone, we laugh at his bungling and roar at his sarcasm, we feel his anger as he learns the truth about his adopted children's past, we cry at their innocence and fears, and we cheer their victories. When he fights on two fronts, versus a corporate goliath intent on disrupting the adoption and against Social Services ineptitude and opposition, we salute his tenacity and humor. A tribute to one man's determination to be a father, He Shall Appear From Nowhere is also a vivid and poignant testimonial to the regenerative capacity of three wounded children, who in David's loving care burst like a displaced seed of brown cotton, oblivious to the storm that brought them together. In 2005, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, only 8,000 children were adopted from local Social Services agencies by people without a previous relationship with the children. Just 2%, or 160, entered the home of a single male. David Marin adopted three. He was likely the only single Caucasian man in the nation to adopt three minority children.
