I remember exactly as you described it. I remember ironing my number "2" to everything with my mom. I was 5 in1965. I stayed there till 1969. I have nightmares of the things I suffered and the things I witnessed. I am Cuban my name is Maria Bernadette Suarez. My best friend was the only black girl in my room "Chantal " and a spanish girl named Pilar. I do have a picture of my entire class that did communion. When I find it I will post it.
The nuns I remember: sister Roger (awesome) in the little girls room..sister Francis ( okay) in the middle too sister Jean ( horrible) I watched her beat Natasha with a 2 by 4 ! The things that happened there were un heard of. I have never been able to forgive my parents. Please let me know more of what you remember .
Will never forget
