I love the way that they portrayed the husband of the natural mother (Geraldine). He was as compassionate as any character I have ever seen and made me proud to be part of the human race. Holding his wife blameless for the rape (which wasn't necessarily the norm during the 50s and 60s); willingness to accept his wife's decision about what to do with the black child--even encouraging her to keep her baby ("it's just a baby"); saving clues of the child's whereabouts for the birth mother, which she found after his death. Truly a touching story and a laudable portrayal. I hope the real life character was equally as compassionate.
