Karen Morrison, found of Siblings Reunited (STAR) celebrates Stand Up For Siblings third anniversary…
A massive happy third birthday to our team at SUFS! I could not be prouder of being a founding partner of a cause so close to our hearts here at Siblings Reunited (STAR).
STAR was set up in 2013 and for many years to follow we did feel very alone in our fight for siblings separated in care.
Dr Chris Jones approached us here at STAR regarding her thoughts about SUFS and of course we were fully onboard and all extremely excited about this! Prior to the launch, STAR and Clan Childlaw had organised and led the mammoth task of scheduled workshops along the length and breadth of Scotland.
SUFS was launched at the same time as our end of Scotland-wide workshops.
This was a moment in time when I personally (as founder of STAR) stood up to do a planned presentation and I was so busy looking down at the electronics and my wording to really take in the scale of all of our work – I looked up to begin my presentation and quickly had to try and compose myself, I was fighting back such happy and proud tears. For the first time ever I realised that we had Scotland on our side – a team that could really fight this together and help make changes.
And we have already helped to make so many changes – what a team effort – love u all. Karen x
