A Home for Maisie

Absolutely inspiring documentary on adoption last night on BBC 2 called “A Home For Maisie”.  The documentary chronicled parents Jim & Sue who has already adopted a number of “the least wanted” children.  Adopting those children who were not babies and did not look like Orphan Annie and had difficult issues to address.

Maisie’s therapy sessions to overcome the deep seated issues stopping her integrating into the family that wished to adopt her, was included in the documentary.  It is questionable how a girl of around eight years old can fully consent to such personal content about her being filmed and aired.  However, the results of the therapy, whilst slow and painful, were undeniable.  Maisie’s adoptive parents were real life heroes, simply enduring and loving and loving and eduring, until that love was eventually more visibly returned.
