There were a lot of dropped jaws in the of­fice this week as we put to­gether our cover story on adop­tion in Aus­tralia. Surely there weren’t only 317 kids adopted into Aussie fam­i­lies last year? Surely it doesn’t take on av­er­age five years for an adop­tion to hap­pen? The an­swer, sadly, is yes. How­ever, there’s some good news: New re­search by Adopt Change (a non-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion founded by De­borra-lee Fur­ness) found that the over­whelm­ing ma­jor­ity of us think adop­tion gives kids a bet­ter life and brings joy to a fam­ily. Turn to page 6 to find out more about Adopt Change’s cam­paign to sim­plify adop­tion pro­cesses. Have a great week.
