Nobody’s Home

This is the true story of the powerless exposed to the brutality of the powerful, where children were commodities, and the law turned a blind eye to unimaginable evil. Robert writes about the men and the mechanisms that consumed the innocence of children and then discarded them to a life of shameful silence and suicide. This blame must be forever shouldered by the South Australian State Government and never let us forget them. RIP.


Robert had no education; the highest level he got to was grade three.


Robert self-educated. By speaking out, against the odds, Robert is concluding his miracle of survival. The day my father killed himself was the first day of my life.


Merciful God, I cried with joy the day my Father died. Please forgive me, Father. AMEN

    This book grips you from the first page, written with raw emotion and honesty. We read about the authors traumatic upbringing and how he did not let his early childhood experiences to destroy his life. It takes courage to write such a book and open yourself up to the world. A true inspiration to anyone who reads this book.

    What a amazing story of survival and horror that was allowed to be performed to a innocent kid by people and officials paid to look after children.
