Response to Refugee
If it is true about the child being left in PNG it is disgraceful.
If the children have an Australian father who is dead then the remaining relatives DNA should prove that they are related, along with corroborating stat decs. and birth certificates those two children will always qualify for aussie citizenship. However, with time there may be deaths within the 'oz' family so she has to establish Australian descent as soon as possible.
Don't be quick to judge the mother, she may want to establish proof and receive citizenship for the two children who are eligible. She will have to live here for unbroken for a certain amount of time before her residency can be accepted. She is then in a position to reunite her other child with the family.
We are not privy to the entire facts surrounding the issue or what emotional rollercoaster the mother and her children are on.
