Family Finders - (S02E10)


As a schoolgirl, Sarah Lindfield became pregnant and made the decision to have her baby son Daniel adopted. All his life Daniel, now called Iwan, longed to meet his birth mum. At the age of 21 Iwan requested his adoption papers from social services - they revealed his mother's full name, but Iwan still had to pluck up the courage to make contact. Years later, Iwan found his mum's address and they met up. Hussin Zahra was a businessman in Syria, but when civil war broke out he had to flee for the safety of his family. Hussin and his family travelled to Egypt, where he made the decision to leave his wife, daughters and baby son while he, his 11-year-old son and his nephew made the trip across the Mediterranean. They lived in a camp in Calais before travelling to the UK in the back of a lorry. Securing asylum, Hussin turned to the British Red Cross to trace his family.
