The long-running Australian soap opera, Neighbours (1985), includes a foster care story in recent years.

When the Neighbours team decided to include a new storyline around foster care and adoption, they consulted with Dr Stacy Blyth of Western Sydney University.

The new storyline developed into a new character, 13-year-old Emmett Donaldson (Ezra Justin) who goes into foster care with same-sex couple David (Takaya Honda) and Aaron (Matt Wilson).
