Facebook Page - https://www.facebook.com/pages/Gary-gatwick-airport-baby-abandoned/181404638541470?fref=ts Hi my name is Steve and I was abandoned as a baby on the 10th of April 1986 at Gatwick Airport I was found by a lady that worked at the airport i was found in the ladies toilets, the doctors believed I was around 10 days old, I was given the birth date of the 31st March however I don't know if that is the day I was born but that is the day I celebrate my birthday. When I was abandoned I was in the newspapers and all over the news. I was named by airport staff as Gary Gatwick My first birth certificate states I was named as Gary Laker. I was adopted later on and my name changed to Steven Gary Hydes. I am searching for any information as to what happened to me. I started my search around 9 years ago where i appealed for help on Meridian Mews, GMTV, and local newspapers, where as I then met the women who found me and other people who were involved in my case I then appeared in a documentary on channel 2 called found, I then stopped my search for a while as i had my daughter and started again 2 years ago when I appeared in a documentary on BBC 3 in April 2011 called The Gatwick Baby Abandoned at Birth. Following this I went in national newspapers again, this morning and the late late show in Ireland. the documentary also went worldwide but unfortunately I have not found out what happened to me the day or the days before I was abandoned. since doing the Documentary I have had a son and although I have a happy family I want to know what happened to me in the early days as I do not know my name, birthday or if I have any brothers or sisters. I am looking for any information that anyone might know or have to find out what happened to me you can message me on Facebook or on my email address at the top. I do have someone helping me who has helped me since day one and is happy to talk to anyone in confidence without me knowing if you wish. any little detail is a lot to me as I know nothing. I was left in baby grows and blankets but no note was left they say I had been well cared for. you can view the photos of my baby grows and blankets in my photos. You can view my story:- Guardian - http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandstyle/2011/apr/09/gatwick-baby-abandoned-1986?INTCMP=SRCH Daily Mail - http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1375159/Steve-Hydes-man-dubbed-Gary-Gatwick-left-airport-25-years-ago-returns.html BBC Three - http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b010fq9r Daily Mirror - http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/real-life-stories/they-called-me-gary-gatwick---because-265046 BBC News - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-13001370 Metro - http://www.metro.co.uk/tv/reviews/860783-the-gatwick-baby-abandoned-at-birth-was-quietly-moving Keith is the person helping me and if anyone wishes to contact him in strict confidence instead of my self they can contact him on firstname.lastname@example.org,he is happy to speak to anyone and would pass on a charity s information if they wish to discuss with someone more private however what is said to Keith will not even get back to me if that is there wish.I appreciate people sharing my page as this gives me more chance of finding out information someone out there must know and i want my biological family to know that i have no anger towards what happened as I believe what they did they would have had a very good reason, I understand my mum may have a family where they will know nothing about me or her past and that I understand but I have a whole family out there that I know nothing about.

Click here to watch great FREE Movies & TV: http://filmrise.com Of the 1.5 million adopted children in the U.S., international adoptees are the fastest growing segment. While many of their stories play into our self-image of American compassion and generosity, the realities, as told in this 2008 documentary, are much more complex. First-time director, Barb Lee, goes deep into the intimate lives of two well-meaning families and shows us the subtle challenges they face. One family is just beginning the process of adopting a baby from China and is filled with hope and possibility. The other family's adopted Korean daughter is now 32 years old. Prompted by her adoptive mother's terminal illness, she tries to create the bond they never had. The results are riveting, unpredictable and telling. While the two families are at opposite ends of the journey, their stories converge to show us that love alone isn't enough to make a family work.

Adoption is now high on the political agenda as the best option for the 65,000 children in care. But, with less than 5% actually placed for adoption, children must wait an average two years and seven months for a permanent family. Why does it take so long? What is the human cost?

March 2010 How does it feel for a child, who already has a family, to be adopted by strangers never to go back home? Heres the harrowing reality behind the practices of some international adoption agencies. Journee Bradshaw was already 13 and came from a large, middle-class Ethiopian family when she arrived in the US. She thought she was going on a trip abroad whilst her adoptive parents had been told she was only 9 and destitute. But it was all a lie. The realisation that she was not going home was a terrible trauma: "Her world was ripped away from her and we cant replace that." Says her adoptive grandmother. Her case is not an isolated one. Adoption agencies in the US are reluctant to allow more transparency in what has become a thriving business, which means abuses are easy and commonplace. For Journee and her adoptive family, its been a disaster: "Its like selling. I feel like Ive been sold". Produced by ABC Australia. Distributed by Journeyman Picures
