After 40 years apart, a daughter watches Alberta’s 60s Scoop apology with her father

She was eight months old when she was taken from her family.

At 18 she aged out of the child welfare system.

After she spent her days feeling like something was missing.

40 years later, Laura Osgood is trying to reconnect with her culture and language.

More importantly, her family.

This week Osgood was with her father when Premier Rachel Notley apologized to 60s Scoop survivors.

But was it enough?
