There were an estimated 500,000 Australians during the 20th century who experienced out-of-home care. Children were raised in orphanages, foster homes and other types of institutional care. Many of these children were removed from their parents because of neglect and abuse and yet experienced neglect and abuse in State and church sponsored settings.
Recipes for Survival: Stories of Hope and Healing by Survivors of the State 'Care' System in Australia is a book about surviving some of the most difficult childhood experiences imaginable.
If Australia is to stop perpetuating harm against children, these stories must be read, the lessons learned and the survivors celebrated.
