"Who Am I?"

August 28, 2007

What if everything you thought you knew about yourself was a lie? How would you feel if you discovered that your parents weren't your biological parents? Or, if you found out that you had family who may not even have known you exist? Or, if you had family who didn't care to find you?

 

 

Abandoned

Savannah, 27, has never known her biological mother and has always felt incomplete. She says her mother, Peggy, vanished when she and her sister were very young, and she's always wondered why her mom never tried to find them.

 

"I have a vague memory of standing at the window, waiting for her to come back."

 


 

Reunion

Savannah meets her mother, Peggy, face to face for the first time in over 20 years and asks her most pressing question: Why? Peggy says she didn't abandon her kids and tried to track them down, but Savannah doesn't buy it.

 

"How could you move on without knowing your kids?"

Unsolved Mystery

Rena's mother passed away when she was 10, and that's when she learned that she had no legal identity. Her parents weren't her biological parents, her birth certificate was fake and her social security number belonged to someone else.

Starting Over?
