Summary

Summary

This Hallmark Hall of Fame presentation was based on a true story, as set down in the book Looking for Lost Bird by Yvette Melanson and Claire Safran. The heroine, a thirty-something woman named Rebecca, is an adoptee raised by a Jewish family. Though the fact that she was adopted was never in doubt, Rebecca (or "Becks," as she is known to her friends and family) was kept in the dark as to her actual heritage. Only after the deaths of her adoptive parents, and her subsequent marriage, does Rebecca touch base with her natural parents and her three siblings -- all of whom are Native Americans living on a Navajo reservation in Arizona. As Rebecca begins a whole new life under her true name of Odette Marie Monroe, her husband Jack and their children undergo a few changes of their own, not all them pleasurable. The winner of a CAMIE Award (for "Character and Morality in Entertainment"), The Lost Child originally aired November 19, 2000 on CBS. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
