Amber and Korey's biological grandfather Steven Egberts and his wife launched legal proceedings to alter a suppression order on the case which prevented publication about the existence of Ms Wilson-Rigney's eldest son.

Mr Egberts said the suppression order would prevent the whole truth from coming out in a report by SA Ombudsman Wayne Lines who has investigated Families SA's handling of the case.

During a Supreme Court hearing on Thursday, Justice Malcolm Blue altered the suppression order.

"I'm tired three years, I can't believe I have to fight to tell what the truth is," an emotional Mr Egberts told the court.

"It's very hard to come here time and time again and just keep fighting for that truth.

"The Ombudsman's [report]— from what we have seen — is the closest we will get to that."
