Sam Burns said his heart seemed to stop beating the moment his mother called to tell him the news.
- Sam Burns and his partner Maddie are raising his sister’s four children after her death in April 2020
- The family has received plenty of community support and an online fundraiser has also been set up to help
- Mr Burns says it is challenging, but taking the kids on was the easiest decision he’s ever made
His older sister Corrina, a victim of domestic violence, had taken her own life in her South Australian home.
Her two oldest children made the discovery some hours later after she failed to pick them up from school.
Mr Burns had spoken to his sister days before her death and reassured her that they would see each other again soon.
