Who Were My Parents…

And why was I left to die on a hillside?

Found this article about an abandoned baby in England in 1937 quite interesting and thought you might too. Fits in with Reading Ireland too as the baby ended up being Irish!

  1. I amazed once again by coincidence. I just finished reading a book called Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate. It’s a novel based on the true story of Georgia Tann, a woman who ran an adoption agency in Tennessee in the 1930s & 40s. But she stole children of poor people and sold / adopted them out to rich people and celebrities, like Lana Turner and Joan Crawford. Her agency had the highest infant mortality rate. As many as 500 children may have died or been killed in her care. This article reflects the same attitude towards children in the same time period. Horrifying.

    • It is horrifying, Joan. The capacity for evil is amazing. Thank goodness all the dark can’t stop the Light from getting through❤️. The book on Tann sounds interesting.
