I'm not sure if there has been a thread on this before, but I do find this programme very moving. There are so many families split up due to adoptions and other reasons and they are reunited on this programme.
The emotions are always the same, relief that the person has been found, tearful reunions and the joy of meeting up again after many years, and often meeting family members they never knew existed. The film Philomena, starring Judi Dench was another such story. Thank goodness the shame of illegitimacy has gone, and mothers dont have their babies torn from their arms, facing a lifetime of sorrow and longing. I cant think of anything worse or more cruel than the way people were treated. Thank heavens times have changed.
