Having known some of these kids and their families most suffered hard lives. Worse than Stolen Generation.

This is a great expo. I loved the photos and the letters people sent. The video on Mary Molloy's reunion was sad, but beautiful.

Sad to find out that nuns lied to young children about their backgrounds in Europe.

I really enjoyed visiting the exhibition and hearing the stories. I hope many people will come and learn about the ways in which children migrants shaped our history.
