The home is still open, but it is called Catholic Children's Home now. They have a website for the home and have a history of the building itself. You might want to check it out. I visited there this summer. They have books of photos, arranged by decade, of children that have been there over the years. Most of them do not have names. I searched and found a photo that MIGHT be my mother, but not sure. The time span and age of this little girl makes it possible. I like to think it is a photo of her.

If you want specific information about family that may have been there, you have to write to them directly to get it.

Good luck.
