ALAS would like to thank Susan Kelly for all her hard work.

We first met Susan when Post Adoption Services Queensland first started.
Susan has been a tower of strength to us as we travelled through our trauma of adoption. Susan picked up the pieces when we broke.
Over the years, Susan has worked with us and gave us her unconditional support when, all of the support groups united and as a Nation  put presure on the State and Federal Governments for first, the inquiry into Former Forced Adoption Policies and Practices and then at the State and Federal Apologies. This dark history of Australian forced adoption is now acknowledged in Parliament's history for all to see.
Susan also helped with the St John's Cathedral Liturgy and stood beside us as we spoke.
Recently, 27th November 2013, Susan chaired the working committee, (ALAS, Jigsaw and Origins) to help us with the organisation of the Rememberance Day morning tea. The day was so special and a day for all who attended to remember the victims of forced adoptions.
Today we have sad hearts.
When we think of Susan, we will always remember the beautiful smile she always  gave us and her unconditional committment to doing her best for us.

                                                              Good Luck Susan!

Beautifully written, thank you A.L.A.S. I too will miss Susan. I wish her all the luck for the future. She will be remembered with love by a lot of people who she has helped in the past... me included.
