Have your say!

The Queensland Government will soon make a statement of apology in parliament to those affected by past forced adoption practices.

These forced adoption practices had long-term impacts for many mothers, fathers, children and extended families.

While the past cannot be changed, the Queensland Government hopes that an apology will help ease some of the pain felt by people affected by past practices and help facilitate the healing process.

Have your say

The Queensland Government wants to hear from all interested individuals and organisations about how the apology should be framed.

Comments and suggestions will be received up until close of business on Thursday 11 October 2012.

It would be greatly appreciated if you could also forward this email to other interested people.

Comments can be submitted:
