In the past year Danny experienced one tragedy after another, each robbing him special people in his life. His partner of five years died in a car accident. His parents - the two people in the world he trusted - announced he was adopted, and abandoned him when it became obvious his "partner" was more than a business partner. His birth mother, found when his adoptive father sent him papers in a final insult to his disowning him, died of cancer. He felt a lifetime of hurt. Could he ever trust a relationship again?
