Poor Relations
'No, they're lovely. They'd never make me feel awkward.
They'll keep inviting me, even if I never ask them back. That's not the problem. It's my pride. I want to be equal with them. I don't want to traipse around in their wake like something out of Anita Brookner. '

'You can't take a black child into a white home and bring her up as your own. 'But we had and we did.
Twenty years on Molly, her adopted daughter Shanti, and natural mother Patsy, tell their story.... a story that Molly has now put into print 'in the hope that it may be of some help to other adoptive parents and their children, and out of the profound belief that love is the most important thing in the world'.
