Worth watching - well made film

This is a true story and it is worth watching. As parents we do not realize that when we abandon our children, it causes trauma, which may not be visual, but bad enough to cripple the child emotionally.

A very sad and mixed up child who becomes overwelmed with his feelings for his birth mother. One wonders if this story could have turned out differently with some "proper" interventions. The movie is a bit long winded and probably would have been suited to a short.
