National Apology for Forced Adoption
Some images of the recently created National Apology for Forced Adoption
delivered at Parliament House today March 21, 2013
A moving, emotional and yet satisfying event to be a part of.
These are my snaps only, hopefully there will be some professional images soon.
Can you believe that day. The very day the most powerful apology to mums, babes, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles and others affected by adoption in all it's forms "was" overshadowed by the pathetic political infighting. I felt the Prime Minister did a marvelous job ... there was a time there, in the Great Hall, you could hear a pin drop. The Prime Minister delivered her speech with real warmth, feeling and care.
At the end of that long and drawn out day the PM did apologise to those of us still there ... it should have been "your" day she said.
the calligraphy looks gorgeous beyond belief! congratulations
Here is a link to the speech given by Prime Minister Gillard:
It will possibly be the best explanation of all. x g
