THE home of Chrissie and Anthony Foster seems like any other – filled with pictures, ornaments and memories.

But something will always be missing.

The couple’s lives changed forever when they discovered their daughters, Emma and Katie, were abused by a priest when they were in primary school.

Struggling in the aftermath, Emma later died of a medication overdose, while Katie was severely disabled in a car crash.

Mrs Foster detailed the family’s anguish in a powerful book, Hell on the Highway to Heaven.
