This was interrest, at one time about 1 month I stayed at a Catholic run place... I will decribe it, as good as my memory allows..
For sure the rooms where the beds were was huge had so many kids... we went to church, had a play ground with a swing that went around like those at a Fair, you sit on the seat then swing around.... The nuns were not my favorte people for they took something very personable, a muff, hat, jacket kinda furry white... from my momma.... I would go to church and stick the waver in my pocket, tasted awful for a child, I was 9yrs old... Had family but they did not want me... I did not go home till 1961 May 29, from another place called Clearwater Ranch, Philo, CA... This place was awesome... Still have great memories... Now I don't know if this is the place, but I remember a counselor taking me to a place took time to get there.... See I was happy at the Clearwater Ranch, my parents tried to make me not happy, went back to Clearwater Ranch... Is there any way to find records that they may have, during this time????
