Abstract: Following the release of the film 'Philomena',  the light has been shown on the untold stories of Irish American intercountry adoption.  As the year of the gathering 2013 draws to a close, the people involved should be help to have their own gathering. This will not be achieved by many unless urgent  goverment and religious organisation action is provided to help people in families seperated through adoption to find one another.
