I watched an episode this week of a girl looking for her brother 16 months older than she & a woman with 3 children looking for her birth mother.
Pos: In both cases the adoptees were shown as coming from very loving adoptive homes, and despite all that, still having a "yearning" to meet someone in their birth families and them being encourage by the AP's to do this. (We know that not all reunions are successful) These reunions were shown as "happy".
Pos: The girl who found her brother, also found a younger sister. She said to her, "You represent that even though they couldn't afford me, that since you were born, that everything turned out OK." That financially it got better. She was OK with that.
Neg: Sibs of the first girl were told that the baby (un-named) died at childbirth.
Neg: 2nd case, Birth mom was in foster care, & upon discovering her pregnancy, "FDad wasted no time with adoption". She had no choice.
