  Kate Adie 13 September 2005  
On her new book

In an era obsessed by family history, how do people without any cope?

Kate Adie was adopted as a baby and has written a new book about foundlings, children who are abandoned to the state by their mothers, often with next to nothing to connect them to their roots. 

Kate joins Jenni to talk about Nobody's Child and how the lack of information about where the foundlings have come from affects them as they grow up.

Nobody's Child by Kate Adie, published by Hodder & Stoughton Ltd -ISBN: 0340838000
