Abandoned at Birth

About the Show

About the Show

Steven Hydes was abandoned in the ladies toilet at Gatwick Airport when he was just ten days old. He was healthy, calm and wrapped in a blanket with spare clothes by his side, but had no birth certificate or clues as to where he’d come from. At the time, the newspapers dubbed him Gatwick Gary. He was fostered and then adopted when he was six months old. Steven is very close to his adoptive family, but since becoming a parent himself, everything’s changed. Now he wants to resolve the unanswered questions in his life; what made his mother leave him like that; who is she; where was she from? With the full support of his family and his girlfriend, Steven embarks on a powerful, nail biting and life-defining journey. This one-hour special is there every step of the way, as he undergoes DNA testing and meets with other people who were also abandoned at birth. What can Steven learn from them?
