I feel sorry for all those children not knowing who their parents are. It would be so sad getting shipped out of the country and sent to a place where you don't have any family. I'd like to come here a lot cause you have inspired me a lot.

I love this exhibition and I feel bad for the people that were shipped out of the country with no family members with them. Also it would be really really bad if you died not knowing who your mother and father were.

I lived at Fairbridge Farm School Pinjarra WA in the mid 1960s and it wasn't all bad. It was a tough time but well worth it.

This exhibition reminds me of the power of having such people around us, supporting and loving us through whatever may come our way.
