The History of Origins
Thank you for taking
the interest to visit our Home Page. Before I introduce you to our organisation, Origins Vic Inc., I would like to acknowledge
that without the tremendous work carried out by previous organizations who lobbied and fought hard to change adoption legislation
that enabled adopted adults access to identifying information, our own organization, Origins Inc. might not have evolved.
It was the hope that we may finally be permitted to meet the children born to us that became the key to our freedom. It allowed
many of us to begin facing the nightmare of our past and to begin seeing clearly for the first time.
Had legislation not been passed, we may never have been prompted
to delve into and uncover the illicit activities of the adoption industry - and history would have continued to write of the
decades between the 1950's and 1980's as being the only period in the history of humankind where young mothers defied nature
itself and 'willingly' surrendered their own newborns en-masse to strangers. Our aim is to set the record straight.
Origins Vic Inc., along with Origins Tasmania, was founded
in 1996 after joining with Origins NSW, established a year earlier by a small group of mothers who, like us, having lost their
children to adoption were being continuously re-traumatised each time so-called experts and health professionals minimised
and invalidated the severe emotional anguish trauma and grief left in the wake of their adoption experience. Assuming that
we as mothers should have accepted the loss of our living babies - as if it were possible to do that.
Along with the perpetual violation we felt in having so-called
adoption professionals and others justifying and exonerating themselves of their own complicity in this scandalous practice
that had preyed upon our vulnerable state when we were too young and too oppressed to know how to fight this wicked system,
we decided enough was enough.
With everyone adroitly avoiding the truth at our expense,
we realised that by remaining silent we had inadvertently become the "keepers of the lie" and we knew that until mothers began
speaking out publicly about their abusive and inhuman treatment - the myths, lies and deceit upon which adoption has thrived,
would continue to harm the emotional well-being of our children, and we as their mothers would be colluding in our own abuse.
Having researched, we discovered that losing our babies had
been entirely avoidable had our legal rights not been contravened. So we made the illicit adoption practices and the subsequent
trauma the focal point of our organisation. The law was the only weapon we had to force people to bother to listen to us instead
of minimising and dismissing our plight. We have uncovered much more deceit and corruption than we originally expected to.
Reading this Home Page will open your eyes to what will come
to be seen as a shocking, socially engineered program of separating babies from their mothers at birth. Having nothing whatsoever
to do with the interest of the newborn infant.
