|23 Years of Forced Adoption Activism
Origins is an organisation that has been in existence for over 23 years. It was founded in 1995 by a group of Mothers who
lost children to past adoption practices basically from the 1950s through to the later periods right up to and beyond the
Origins was formed to research the legal, historical and the social and psychological implications and side effects of adoption,
such as, mental health disorders and other issues associated with child separation. Our research also comprises other elements:
foster care; institutional care; and Aboriginal child removal. Origins is an international organisation with branches in
the USA, Canada, UK, Ireland, and NZ.
Origins has for many years had the opportunity at a representative national level to observe the issues of most aspects and
effects of family separation. Origins believes that as an organisation it was fortunate to be in a position to be able to
do that due to its commitment to advocating and studying the effects of adoption and child removal, based over the past two
decades Origins has contributed to many Senate and Parliamentary inquiries, departmental consultations, academic research
projects and exhibitions to name a few, and our extensive library focused on adoption and child separation issues.
Origins SPSA Inc is an unfunded
organisation that relies on the memberships and donations of those that support adoption advocacy. It has not been funded
by Federal, State or Church to promote adoption awareness and to the support the aims and objectives of Origins. We rely on
those that believe in truth and justice for those affected by past practices, we have a large resource library that is considered
to be a national asset that has enabled us to make Federal and State governments accountable for past unlawful practices .
