Marylee was adopted in 1945 and never felt like she fit in her family. After her adoptive parents got divorced, she got a boyfriend and accidentally got pregnant when she was 16. She gave that baby up for adoption, but went on to marry his father and have four more children.

This is her story of reconnecting with her firstborn and exploring all the feelings that went along with both her decision and their reunification.
