The commemorative public artwork "The Space Between" commemorates the parents, adoptees and families who suffered loss through forced adoptions. It consists of a large block of polished granite that has been separated, signifying the split of one part from the other, and a nearby boulder where people can sit and contemplate.

It was created by the artists Deb Jones and Christine Cholewa. The project was directed by a steering committee that included community representation.

This artwork is for all those whose lives have been profoundly affected by adoption separation practices –

For the loss suffered by many, for the ongoing grief and pain experienced by Mothers who lost their children, and for Adoptees who lost their identity, heritage and family.
