Philomena Lee, an Irish woman whose search for the son that she gave up for adoption in the 1950’s, and is now a Hollywood film, meets with Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo. on Capitol Hill in Washington, Thursday, Jan. 30, 2014. With her life story now the subject of an Oscar-nominated film, Philomena Lee is calling for government reforms, in Ireland and the U.S., that would grant adopted people access to adoption files.
