Adam I Have Loved by adamant Rated: PG-13 starstarstarstarhalf-star [Reviews - 36]
Summary:

Although there have been many stories of Adam living with Indians, I have tried to make certain I have not duplicated any plots. This is an attempt at reinvention of canon, of having Adam taken by Indians as a young boy and later, as an adult, when meeting up again with his father, unable to determine what his action will be--revelation or first revenge on the man who abandoned him. An AU. The title is a paraphrase of Romans 9:13.
