Taken from her parents, brothers and sisters and committed to the care of the Child Welfare Department, Rosalie, a two-year-old Aboriginal child, was subjected to unbelievable abuse at the hands of her foster mother. Shadow Child exposes the faceless bureaucracy that went on to tear from Rosalie her baby sister – and her identity. Escaping from the torture of her so-called home, she became a street-kid in constant trouble with the law, but with the help of others and by her own unquenchable spirit, survived to become the author of this powerful and inspiring autobiography, which, miraculously, has a happy ending.
