Two women adopted from South Asia search for their birth families - Ria and Rebecca hope to find answers as they return to Sri Lanka
Abandoned outside a hospital in Sri Lanka, Rebecca (pictured above) was three months old when she was adopted by a British couple and taken to live in the UK.
In the first of a two-part series following adoptees, Rebecca, now 38 years old and a mum of four, sets off on an emotionally charged journey back to Sri Lanka where she hopes to find her birth mother.
‘I have always felt a big part of me was missing,’ says Rebecca, who has already made two previous visits to the country but with no success.
Meanwhile, 27-year-old Ria from Scotland – one of 11,000 babies also adopted from Sri Lanka – is on a separate mission to find her birth mother.
