I am so deeply saddened to hear of Annette’s passing. She was a true pioneer and such a mentor and comfort to me when I was searching for both my daughter and mother. She was also (through her son Josh) responsible for introducing me to Peter Mullan, which helped ignite an enormous fire under our cause for justice for survivors of Ireland’s Magdalene laundries. It would not have been impossible without Annette. I cannot imagine the sorrow of Annette’s family, but my heart and prayers go out to all of you.

She will be terribly missed by the adoption community at large and we will never forget the very important groundwork she’s laid.

Requiecat en pace, Annette.
