Bringing them home oral history project.

Summary

Kendall speaks about her 15-year-old mother; her adoption at the age of 12 weeks; her childhood with her adoptive parents in Sydney; and finding out at the age of 21 that she was of Aboriginal descent. Kendall sought her natural family through Link-up and eventually met her birth mother in 1987 and was able to contact her birth father. She describes the work she has done with Link-Up to assist other removed children to find their families.
