Two sides to every story

The Telegraph yesterday reported the case of a mother who is facing extradition to America charged with child kidnapping, having 'fled to Britain with her three children more than a decade ago to escape a failed marriage'. Now, I don't want to comment upon the case (there is not enough information regarding the circumstances surrounding the 'kidnapping', and I am not qualified to comment upon the extradition aspect), so much as the report itself, which is clearly sympathetic towards the mother. There could, however, be another side to the story: of a father who wrongfully had his children taken away from him, and of children who were denied a relationship with their father.
