Finding Family
stories from the stage

Families are woven into the fabric of society. While some families are tied together by biology, others are created when people welcome children into their hearts and homes through adoption. Betsy Komjathy helps her teenage son make contact with his birth mother; Dan Dahari describes being smuggled out as an infant from Mexico; and Paul Brouillette's relationship with his mom takes a twist when he adopts a baby boy. Three storytellers, three interpretations of FINDING FAMILY.

Episode Duration: 26 minutes and 40 seconds

Episode Number: 705
