          Susan was 15 years old when she gave birth and placed her daughter for adoption. That was more than 27 years ago, but she still can’t get over the pain of being separated from her child and from being bullied and ostracized at school. 

          High School Hell
          Susan wants to find the daughter she hasn’t seen in 27 years, but first, Dr. Phil thinks she has some work to do.
          Getting past the bitterness.


          Confronting Her Past
          Susan says that EJ was the ringleader of a group of girls who bullied her at school. She gets a chance to have a constructive conversation with EJ.

          Will she choose to forgive?



          Surprise Reunion
          Through the years, Susan often wondered if she’d ever be able to meet her daughter. “I missed out on her growing up,” she says, tearfully.
