While this is a very sad story, I found it easy to read as it was well written. It was like reading a good book.
Unfortunately, it's always the children who suffer for the acts of their parents... In the 1800s into a large part of the 1900s, this is how things were dealt with all over the world. So many infants & children went to an orphanage or to homes that only wanted free workers on farms, etc... In today's world it is more likely that the infants will be sold on the black market. Some of which were taken from their mothers unwillingly.
All of these children as well as those today that find themselves in unloving or abusive situations deserve so much better in life. Not to be spoiled but to be loved & wanted. There has to be a solution for them all...

I don't know that there is a solution but we can at least hope that unwanted babies have a brighter future than what they often face now.


I was conceived in a mental institution and then later adopted. This was in 1969. Evidently, the men were able to get to the women somewhat easily.

I wanted to send Florence a message who was conceived in a mental institution in 1969. I was wondering what challenges she has had in life?
