A story about forced adoptions. What can anyone really say? Sorry is a start.

    Fine commentary, Mr Dog.

    Those Brides of Chr1st would be in heaven now enjoying the rewards of their earthly calling. How godly to be a sanctimonious fence for stolen babies to be placed with nice respectable Christian folk.

    Amberj was right. Real tears from this one.
    Thanks FD. You’ve defined the *really* important thing that happened in Canberra yesterday.

    P.S. Crikey, this one needs to be unleashed from the paywall.

    Excellent and sad at the same time.

    FD might get an(other) award from this one.

    Another Walkley coming up.

    FD thank you, your toon is a sanctuary of reason. I read this & followed with Angela Barra’s story of forced adoption, recommended it. Also can I recommend the film Oranges & Sunshine to anyone touched by this issue.

    Good one dog. Worthy of the apology and the report that informed it. No jokes here but we can feel some cheer that the wrong is acknowledged and should not be made again. Unfortunately, as Jon Kudelka pointed out yesterday, we can look forward to another apology in 20 years to the children of refugees.
