Nothing can break the bond between a mother and her child. When young Linda finds herself pregnant and abandoned, she retreats to an unwed mothers’ home to give birth. “You’ll never see him again. You’ll forget,” they promised her as they took him away for adoption.
Time passes, Linda marries, has two more sons and becomes a psychological therapist. But when her youngest asks a life-changing question, she realizes no mother forgets her baby.
In this powerful true story, Linda reveals her intensely personal experience when the ‘50’s and early ‘60’s culture demanded girls like her redeem their shame by giving away their babies.
Along the way, the trauma and grief she’s buried explodes. Her body has never forgotten what she tried to erase from her mind. As Linda embarks on her journey to reconnect with lost family, she knows she must have the courage to face her pain in order to heal the broken young woman left behind the wall of shame and secrecy.
