Mother's Day isn't the same when you're forced away from family

Perhaps the most tragic are the families torn apart when they are expecting a new baby. Expectant mothers have been brought to Australia from Nauru to give birth, but authorities have decided the child's father must stay behind.

These mothers are forced to make an agonising choice: their babies can be free and safe, or they can know their father. But they know they will never ever have both.......Some of the babies born in Australia are now toddlers, walking and talking in the freedom and safety of our communities. But they have still never laid eyes on their dad. And they never will — unless Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton has a change of heart.
