ABC Open’s Separated project shares very personal stories of parents and children separated by past policies and practices of forced adoption. Angela Barra was one of these children and is now an adult advocating for recognition and increased support for those affected.
Angela’s story was published the day the Queensland State Government made its formal apology and struck a nerve, evidenced in heated debate posted as comments at the bottom of each blog article. You can read these articles here.
Angela’s story was also broadcast on ABC News24 22nd March 2013.
The three parts to Angela’s story can be watched interchangeably, reflecting the cyclical nature of Angela’s anxiety, reflection and energy.
