The young mother of two has spent more than a year seeking a transfer to be closer to her family, who live in the Liverpool/Cabramatta area. “It’s such a beautiful area,” the 24-year-old said of the Illawarra. “I’m five minutes from the beach, my kids go to a great school, and I’ve met some beautiful people here. “But I just can’t be here – my mental health is not suitable for my kids or me. “I used to be so happy, taking my kids out all the time.
