The Queensland Government Adoption Apology 2 nd Anniversary.
On Thursday the 27 th of November 2014 at The Roma Street, Parkland there will be an unveiling
Monument with a copy of The Queensland Government Adoption Apology and a Tea Rose engraved
in Brass, also a Beautiful Pink Rose will be planted.
This has come into fruition with lots of hard work and dedication from The Adoption Apology
This Idea originally came from the ALAS Committee, who worked to forming The Adoption
Apology Working Committee,who lobbied the Queensland Government to give us a place where we
could go and reflect ,The Government Acknowledging Former Forced Adoptions.
Looking forward to this great day,after many years of hard work by so many people, to get the Queensland Governments Adoption Apology, we at ALAS hope as many people affected by Adoption can come along.

Ladies after lodging submissions against these adoption law changes to go ahead, the men in parliament ignored us, they have not heeded the warnings of the past ADOPTION wrongs!. Will they apologise to the overseas families whose children end up being adopted by Australian couples. How long will it be before we have another GENERATION of OVERSEAS STOLEN BABIES OR CHILDREN? To satisfy the Australian BABY MARKET.! Infertile couples do not have the right to expect to take another woman's child causing post traumatic stress disorder.

We are a friendly understanding group of women, feel free to bring a female support person with you, Note we are trialing a weekday for meetings, as so many mothers help with grand children on Saturdays, any ideas of different places to try please call me or send an e-mail.. The 8- 10 June it will be 5 years since we trailblazers went on national television, to receive that all to famous ADOPTION APOLOGY from Professor Ian JONES, little did we know that the PAST ADOPTION PRACTICES & POLICIES would finally be exposed, we were believed by so many politicians who backed us up for the SENATE INQUIRY, which has gone down in history, as being instrumental in THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENTS FORCED ADOPTION APOLOGY on 21 st of march 2013, we have campaigned for that DAY to stay our ADOPTION REMEMBRANCE DAY, we still need to LOBBY all POLITICIANS, TONY ABBOTT want's to give our day away to the afghan veterans, there were no major battles on that day, so they don't want it & are backing us up. 21 st March is anti bullying day [we were all bullied into surrendering our babies by the bullying tactics used against us]. Harmony day is also relevant to us we should all be reunited & left to live in peace & quiet. To do this we should band together & fight for COMPENSATION, starting at $500.000.00,if enough of us fight for this, then maybe this GOVERNMENT would think twice about its proposed new ADOPTION LAWS, people in high places& prime ministers should not be ALLOWED to return to the past taking of the children from poor families which the government have made poor.
