Mum Val and daughter Marisa have always felt a huge part of their family was missing. Long Lost Family investigates...
Davina McCall and Nicky Campbell reunite more estranged families as this heart-warming series continues.
Mum Val and daughter Marisa have always felt a huge part of their family was missing. Eleven months after giving birth to Marisa, Val had a son, Stephen, but with no money or support she had to give him up for adoption – a decision that has haunted her ever since. Every card Marisa sends to her mum is always also from Stephen, the brother she’s always felt connected to but never met.
The second story is about 37-year-old Sam, who is looking for her mum and sister, who was also adopted. Given up for adoption as a baby, Sam has always longed to know what happened to her family, and why her mum had to go through the trauma of giving up two babies.
