My family and I are so very very sorry the country we call home has you locked up. We wish you freedom and strength and love and as normal a family life as possible. Along with many other Australians we are attending vigils and protests and we are spreading the word that asylum seekers need support not persecution. As a mother I feel great joy for you expecting your new baby. As a mother I also feel great shame that this country is not doing its best to nurture all of its children. You are here Ranjini, and you are one of us. We will not stop demanding your freedom. May your spirit of survival live forever.
Love Kirstene Ost and family
