Our History (Australia)
you for taking the interest to visit our Home Page. Before I introduce you to our organization, Origins Inc., I would like
to acknowledge that without the tremendous work carried out by national organizations such as Adoption Triangle, ARMS, Jigsaw
and others who lobbied and fought hard to change adoption legislation that enabled mothers and children access to identifying
information, our own organization, Origins Inc., may not have evolved. As it was the hope that we may finally be permitted
to meet the children born to us that became the key to our freedom. It allowed many of us to begin facing the nightmare of
our past and to begin seeing clearly for the first time.
legislation not been passed, we may never have been prompted to delve into and uncover the illicit activities of the adoption
industry - and history would have continued to write of the decades between the 1950's and 1980's as being the only period
in the history of humankind where young mothers defied nature itself and 'willingly' surrendered their own newborns en-masse
Inc. Was founded in 1995 by a small group of mothers who, having lost their children to adoption, were being continuously
re-traumatised each time so-called experts and health professional minimised and invalidated the severe emotional anguish,
trauma, and grief left in the wake of their adoption experience, assuming that we, as mothers, should have accepted the loss
of our living babies - as if it were possible to do that.
with the perpetual violation we felt in having so-called adoption professionals and others justifying and exonerating themsleves
of their own complicity in this scandalous practice, that had preyed upon our vunerable state when we were too young, and
too oppressed to know how to fight this wicked system, by hearing adoption of newborns now being referred to as a social phenomenon
of a social era that is passed - rather than the illicit raping of babies from their mothers that it was - we decided enough
everyone adroitly avoiding the truth, at our expense, we realised that by remaining silent we had inadvertantly become the
"keepers of the lie" and we knew that until mothers began speaking out publically about our abusive and inhuman treatment
- the myths, lies and deceit upon which adoption has thrived, would continue to harm the emotional well-being of our children,
and we as their mothers would be colluding in our own abuse.
researched, we discovered that losing our babies had been entirely avoidable had our legal rights not been contravened. So
we made the illicit adoption practices the focal point of our organisation. The law was the only weapon we had to force people
to bother to listen to us, and not continue to minimise and dismiss our plight. It was really our cry for acknowledgement
of the trauma we were experiencing as a result of these practices.
have uncovered much more than we originally intended to.
this Home Page will open your eyes to what will come to be seen as a shocking, socially engineered programme of separating
babies from their mothers at birth. Having nothing whatsoever to do with the interest of the newborn infant.
adoption of infants at birth has been a socially contrived - sanctioned evil designed to control illegitimacy at the expense
of both mother and child.
