Synopsis by Hal Erickson
This weekly semi-documentary series was dedicated to shattering popular myths about the practice of adoption in America. On each episode, two to three real-life stories of adoption were chronicled, covering everything from the efforts by aspiring parents to find eligible youngsters (often by traveling all over the world) to heartrending biographies of the birth mothers who had to make the difficult decision. As often as possible, the stories were updated to let the viewer know how the adoptees (and their new families) were faring. Hosted by Melissa Gilbert, Adoption debuted over the Hallmark cable channel on June 1, 2002.
