Utilizing case histories and interviews throughout the text, this is an examination of all aspects of the experience of giving up a child for adoption. It explores the social stigma of being an unwed mother, the decision to relinquish a baby, the isolation from parents, society and the child's father, and the fear of being traced by a child in later life. The text also describes the attitudes of society, the laws surrounding the issue and the medical and psychological viewpoint.
