Can an Adoptee find Happiness?

Paul Kimball, an adoptee and musician, explores his feelings of abandonment as he reunites with his birth parents. After a brief reunion, he is rejected by his birth mother, a concert cellist. In despair, he finds his Armenian birth father whose first words to him were “Son, I love you.” Adoptees have unanswered questions and unfulfilled wishes. With whom do we belong? Can we find a sense of acceptance when our first experiences were of rejection and separation? Is there room for happiness?
