It's sad because hearing the things she does around the house, its like she's a slave :-(
I also know of a young boy here, he's also receiving an Australian eduction and seems quite happy.
I assume it's more common to adopt from the islands to OZ for a better education, rather than this situation.
This woman lived with Aunty, didn't she??

I don't know much about Samoan culture but Samoan Community leaders have suggested that it may be a cultural issue about bringing shame on their family.
"Samoan leaders in New Zealand are calling on their community to show compassion towards a woman who left her baby in a Sydney drain to die.
Community leaders say that often Samoan women who are unmarried and pregnant fear shaming their families."

The information contained in that article is false and was written in an attempt to gain sympathy from the public.
Blaming culture is such a lame excuse. We lived in an area populated with a lot of Pacific Islanders and yes, a lot were very religious but there were also unplanned pregnancies where the child was taken on, not dumped in a drain.
This woman concealed her pregnancy. She's living with three people in a small apartment and even they didn't know. She has it and hours later is out of the hospital and dumps the baby boy.
I'm sorry but there is no way she was protecting her family when she did this. She knew what she was doing.
I hope she gets life and the baby is adopted into a family who will love him.
