steve's family
Steve's mother Connie, age 4, just before leaving Malta. The year was 1953 and Australia was calling out for Europeans to migrate to a new life on the other side of the world. Connie doesn't remember much about it but I'd imagine it would have been a loooong boat trip for a little girl.



Meanwhile George, Steve's father, also made the big move from that tiny country hiding under Italy. Here he is, standing next to his mother, a few years after moving to Melbourne.











My mum's family came from southern Europe and I recognise that very strong bond Steve has with home and family. It's seems to me that the further some families travel from their roots the closer they become. In Steve's case, this is a great thing...
