Saint Joseph's Orphanage,
Halifax, Nova Scotia
Established in 1849
My name was Patsy O'Brien (back then 1946-1953) I would like to invite my
sisters & brothers of this orphanage to write to me and send their stories.....
If you would like your story placed on my Home Page I would be delighted to do so......
Please send along your story..... and OPTIONAL..... (an old picture if you have one,and what you look like today) plus a permission note to add your story (unedited) to this Home Page. (No profanity please!)
So that other sisters & brothers will come forth with theirs......
Maybe if enough of us find each other...We could have a reunion????
