on the world at one, on thursday, was an email from a woman regarding the lasting effects of having been adopted. it was read by an actor and was one of the most elegantly written letters i've heard on the radio - my heart went out to her.

I heard it Scully ... it was almost unbearable to listen to.

I just heard it, so much anguish!
Very difficult, but what is the answer? I don't believe that children of 50-60-70 years ago were given up by mums easily, only as last resort, when it was impossible for them to keep them/bring them up. Mothers suffered a life long guilt and anguish too.
Sometimes children of today are taken away or given up too quickly and sometimes too late. There is no easy answer that fits all the situations. I don't think we will ever find a solution that works for everyone.
God bless all the mothers that had to give up their child and all the children who never had a chance to know their family.
