Two years on...

Yesterday marks two years since Kiwi Rose passed away... I still think of her often, and her girls, how her youngest is going and the aching space she left behind in her loved ones life.  I am so desperately sad this was the way out for her.  Sad the New Zealand government are so caught up in their own political careers and personal crap they couldn't do the right thing and change the archaic laws so another mother would not lose her child unnecessarily.  Sad that this could happen again given the state of the New Zealand Adoption Act 1955 and angry too that it cost a beautiful mother her life and her two daughters, their mother.

Still missing you Kristy as I know so many are... we will not break faith and we will make sure your story is known xxx

    1. Hi Jennifer,

      Her blog is on my blog list - and she was really clear she was going to do this. I first emailed her when she had failed a couple of times and she contemplated for a while living but it didn't last sadly. In her words, she said to think of her as living with cancer and life was incompatible with such loss. She was an incredibly intelligent young woman and was involved with many womens rights movements in NZ through the uni she attended. It is a great loss...

  3. Two years already. Sometimes it feels like it was just yesterday. We just can't end the fight, can we, until mothers are saved from having to suffer in the way Kiwi Rose did.

    1. I agree Cassi, there is still so much to do. People just don't understand that if only one mother and her child suffer, it is still too many. If the system allows ANY abuse, ANY unethical behavious then there MUST be change. Because left unchecked, one unethical adoption will spread like wildfire until the whole system has rot at its core... and in adoption we know this has happened already and sadly Kristy's story represents one of many more. Suicide because of adoption loss is not a popular topic and so there are many more that are never related to adoption because it would upset the customers and society's love affair with adoption. We need to show the world the underbelly and make it clear what is at the core.
