Forced adoptees are not alone - Latrobe Valley

Latrobe Valley residents meeting to talk about the often painful impacts of forced adoption have been given an opportunity to see things from another perspective.

For the first time in Traralgon, adopted people, mothers, fathers and adoptive parents spent an afternoon together sharing their experiences.

It was part of at a recent support group meeting facilitated by Victorian Adoption Network for Information and Self-Help.

Between the 1950s and 1970s thousands of unwed, young mothers were forced to give up their babies in circumstances often surrounded by deceit and secrecy, according to the

Forced adoption pain lingers

JO Fraser was one of an estimated 150,000 women who had their babies forcibly adopted over three decades from the 1950s.

It was a practice sanctioned by governments, churches, hospitals and charities, and a year on from a national apology to her and others, the pain still lingers.

Giving birth in Melbourne in 1971, Ms Fraser, then 17, was too scared to sneak a look at her son.

Later she signed the adoption papers.

"I just did what I was told," she told AAP.

George, left, and brother Bernard at Wemyss Bay in Ayrshire last week

TWO brothers reveal their heartache after they were taken from their family home in Greenock and delivered to a farm where they slept in a filthy chicken coop and were forced to steal dog food to survive.

Torn away from their siblings, taken to a remote farm in the dead of night and forced to live a life of slavery from the age of four.

It sounds like a horror story from hundreds of years ago. But it happened in post-war Scotland and the traumatised survivors say they are still trying to piece their lives back together.

Adopted or abducted?

Most women describe giving birth to a child as a life changing experience – in a word – “challenging”, “joyous”, “miraculous.”  But generations of young, unwed women describe their experience of giving birth to a child as a nightmare – and decades later their suffering has yet to end.

From Australia to Spain, Ireland to America, and as recent as 1987, young mothers say they were “coerced”, “manipulated”, and “duped” into handing over their babies for adoption.

World wide economic reform has seen mothers forced into the workforce and placing their babies into the care of others. Great trust is required and mothers and children go through great anxiety when having this forced separation placed on them.

The traditions of mum, dad and the kids, with dad heading off to work have been slowly killed off, and now the ideas of a community caring for the widowed and single mothers or fathers have have been dealt a great blow.

Elder slams NT forced adoption plan

An indigenous elder is pleading with Northern Territory Chief Minister Adam Giles to scrap plans to address Aboriginal child neglect via forced adoptions.

Mr Giles has warned that Aboriginal children are being left with neglectful parents for fear of creating another stolen generation.

The first indigenous head of government in Australia has flagged placing Aboriginal kids in adopted homes if their parents don't take responsibility for them.

But in a letter obtained by AAP, elder Djiniyini Gondarra, who represents 8000 Yolngu people of east Arnhem Land,
