Offla’s Children: A Family Memoir
Keywords:Child protection, Out of home care
Offla’s Children speaks to the present and not just the past, about family identity, loss and love. This book has important implications for current policies and practices, the preservation of bonds between siblings being the most obvious. Offla’s Children is distinctive in that the central narrative is about the authors’ father, nicknamed Offla, while also offering three individual perspectives on being in State care at Silky Oaks, a Brisbane residential care facility, in the 1960s and 1970s.
