Loved this show, I cried too.
It's so sad to see how many of you have known someone who went through this, as for a lot of it was during our parents generation. It's hard to believe how much things have changed in such a short time.
I had never really thought of it before, but I was born during that time. My mum was a unwed teen mother, as I believe my father was married (I don't know him). Her parents lived in Melbourne at a church rectory, as my grandfather is a priest. So more than most, they would have had people viewing it as some kind of scandal....can you imagine some of the parishoners?!
Yet my mum was fully supported by them. She raised me for two years but struggled due to bipolar. So my grandparents took me in, and fully raised me. They also fostered children. I'm one of the lucky ones, as they were the most generous, amazing, open minded people I've ever known.
I'm going to cry at every episode no doubt, it must be absolutely heart wrenching for the women that went through this to relive it, but I'm glad they've put it out there.
Is it on every Sunday night only?
Encore screening now (8:30pm EST).
That's my take on it anyway.
Yes I saw it. Cried with Annie not being able to see or hold her baby.
That Dr annoys me already; slimy. I bet he'd try to get in Joan's pants if she let him! I'd say him and the Matron had a secret deal going.
I think Audrey gives the bribe so she can have her own room and a key.
I don't think it's the photographer's baby, but she met him on her outings.
I think Joan's ex cheated on her and why she's back home. I think the actress is awesome, I can see she'll be up for a Logie next year.
It will be interesting to see what happens next week with Annie.
I definitely know there will be more tears from me hehe
