We see Australia via big apple eyes, and persist with Sara's adventures as she faces head at the demanding situations of daily life in a brand new nation with childrens, one in every of whom has targeted needs.
We chuckle together with her as she drives at the different aspect of the line, grapples with the Australian vernacular and its penchant for understatement, and ponders the superiority of neighborhood natural world which may kill. We cheer for her whilst she units up the NBC Australasian bureau at from her domestic within the Wombat woodland, reporting from a specifically built sound sales space within the storage, positioned among her husband's Mustang and the bird shed. such a lot of all, we see a mom, a spouse and a reporter made up our minds to create her personal Australian stories, no longer one on mortgage from her husband.
