Amid the politics of Labor blocking the people’s vote on marriage, a remarkable young woman was doing the rounds at Parliament House in Canberra telling her story.
Millie Fontana was raised by loving lesbians but she is passionate about children, wherever possible, being allowed to know the love and nurture of their mum and dad.
“I needed a dad” was the poignant headline in yesterday’s The Australian newspaper.
She didn’t meet her dad, who donated sperm to her birth mother, until she was 11.
It was the happiest day of her life.
Her story has touched the hearts of parliamentarians and journalists again on this her second visit to Parliament House in just over one year.
Millie is not a Christian but she is happy to work with anyone who will help her explain what she calls “the other side of the rainbow”.
You can watch her here on Sky News. Everyone in Australia needs to know her story.
She recorded an interview with me for ACL’s Voice for Values radio program. You can listen here.
While it is disappointing that Labor has rejected the plebiscite, the positive aspect is it gives us more time to persuade our fellow Australians that marriage should be preserved.
The more time we have, the more likely stories like Millie’s will become known.
Thanks for sticking with us in this long journey to protect marriage. By God’s grace, it is winnable.
