Found in a ditch at birth, a young woman who was adopted to a Canadian family, bravely returns to Haiti to find the mother that left her.
This ﬁlm uncovers the extraordinary journey of Judith Craig. Abandoned at birth, she bravely returns to the impoverished nation of Haiti to ﬁnd her parents.
From the poverty-stricken families who've given up a child to the foreign families looking to adopt one, these disparate worlds collide amid Judith's quest to solve the puzzle of her past.

"Filmmaker Sonia Godding's Adopted ID's helps us identify with the search for family by punctuating it with the aftermath of Haiti's earthquake. A poignant reminder of the curse inside the blessing of adoption."
