When this movie was made, the position of a young single working mother would have been just about too scandalous to contemplate. The movie provides a very sympathetic portrayal of the difficulties which at that time made adoption a common outcome. We also see how difficult it can be to live with the adoption decision over time, and how many implications there can be even years later. Some of the events may seem a little unlikely today due to changing attitudes and laws, but the calm and unsensational approach of this movie makes it more than a mere tear-jerker.
