All Susan Haglof ever wanted was to be a mother. By her forties, she thought she'd lost her chance, but then she gets the opportunity to adopt Marko, shortly after his birth. It was love at first sight, but as soon as she had him in her arms, it became clear something wasn't quite right with the adoption. Less than a year into motherhood Susan Haglof faces the possibility of jail time and being separated from her adopted son forever.
