Description:
During the 20th century, over 500,000 Australian children were raised in institutional or out-of-home care. Tragically, many were abused - physically, emotionally and sexually.

Staunch is the story of one boy's life as a Forgotten Australian, and the legacy he left behind. Andy's life began with difficulty - given up at birth, his adoptive father was a violent drunk, his adoptive mother a depressive. He became a ward of the state, and spent his entire adolescence in institutions and foster homes. These were unhappy years, full of confusion, fear and abuse. It wasn't until he met the kind-hearted Miriam that Andy found a parent figure he could trust, and the hope of happiness that had eluded him throughout childhood.

Ginger Briggs brings to life this true story with raw honesty and emotional depth. Staunch is a poignant portrayal of Andy and his friendship with Miriam. It also reveals the heroism of the many thousands who have survived harrowing experiences as Forgotten Australians.
