In 2011, a total of 81,000 people were adopted by Japanese families. If you think that's a lot of babies changing families, though, you're wrong – but not because 81,000 is a small number.
If you were asked by someone with greater means than yourself if you would be willing to let them adopt your son, what would you say? This is the dilemma proposed in this story. This story was written in a place and time where the role of children within a family may be different than in the 21st century. Would you hold your child tight, or give them a chance at something you could never give? Narrated by Glenn Hascall
Years ago, Wynn and Elizabeth Delancy adopted Christine and Henry. Now Christine has moved to a nearby city. Working as a secretary in a prosperous company, she is drawn to her employer's handsome son. Henry has joined the Canadian Mounties, where one of his first duties is to help a young widow and her infant. In their new lives, as new relationships grow, can Christine and Henry still draw on the faith they have learned from their parents?
