Catholic orphanage in Alton, Illinois

My mother was the 8th child of a family that was placed in this catholic "home" along with her brother. She was 2 yrs. old, while he was 4 at the time. My mother was adopted by wonderful people, but I am really not sure it was a legal adoption. Does anyone know the name of this orphanage and/or maybe where I can find records of children in the home in the 1920's - 1930's?

Any help is appreciated.
