|aWhat's your name? Where were you born? What is your date of birth? Simple questions that we are asked throughout our life--but what if you didn't know the answers? Kate Adie uncovers the extraordinary, moving, and inspiring stories of just such children--without mother or father, any knowledge of who they might be, or even a name to call their own. With a curiosity inspired by her own circumstances as an adopted child, Kate shows how the most remarkable adults have survived the experience of abandonment. From every perspective Kate Adie brings us a personal, moving and fascinating insight into the very toughest of childhood experiences--and shows what makes us who we really are.
