'There was no bond between us': Why one woman put her adopted child back up for adoption

Out In The Open

Piya speaks with a mother who adopted two children, whose identity we've agreed to conceal because of the hateful messages she's received about her story in past. She describes how one child's behavioural problems grew so severe that caring for him became unmanageable... and she and her husband placed him back for adoption. They discuss the road to that decision, the shame and stigma surrounding it, and the criticism they've received as a result.
