Irish production company are looking for people who were illegally adopted
An Irish production company are looking to speak to anyone who feels they may have been illegally adopted.
In particular they are reaching out to those who were illegally adopted to the United Kingdom.
They also wish to speak to any women who had their children illegally taken from them and later put up for adoption without their consent.
Sharon Lawless of Flawless Films posted this week to Facebook appealing for anyone who the issue may have affected to contact her;
I'm looking to speak to people who were illegally adopted to the UK from Ireland, and women who live in the UK and whose Irish-born babies were illegally adopted.
This is for research purposes only at this point. All information is confidential and will not be shared with any third party."
The company have worked on several projects dealing with the subject of adoption in the past including the series Adoption Stories.
During the decades that the mother and baby homes existed in Ireland, many children were illegally taken from their mothers and adopted to families in Ireland and abroad.
No exact number of children put up for adoption from these institutions is known and many families are still searching for lost loved ones.
If you or anyone you know may have been affected by this issue and would like to share your story you can contact Sharon in confidence at firstname.lastname@example.org.
