Free text This book, based on testimonies, tells the story (romanticized) of four persons who have been concerned with adoption in one way or another. Angela gave her son for adoption more than twenty years ago and this son tries now to meet her. Gary has been adopted and now that he is going to have a baby, he wants to meet his mother of origin. So wants Charlotte, who is a wife, mother and grandmother. Frances and Nigel have adopted Beverley more than 30 years ago and they have difficulties to accept that their adoptive daughter met her mother of origin. They are scared to lose her.
