This week is National Adoption Awareness Week and Deborra-lee Furness and actor husband Hugh Jackman have launched a campaign to encourage Australians to think about adoption reform and support the social media movement #ahomeforeverychild.
Furness is the founder of Adopt Change an organisation that advocates for:
- a decrease in the number of children currently in state care;
- an increase early intervention and family preservation to keep children with birth families;
- better and more timely decision-making for children who are unable to live with their birth families; and
- the removal of barriers to adoption and lifeline belonging.
