I came to St. John Orphanage in the early 70s as a 5-year-old little girl along with my brother Kenny who was severely abused by our mother. I remember Sr. Roberta and Sr. Theresa the most. Sr. Roberta worked with the boys and Sr. Theresa worked with us girls. My brother Kenny lived there with me for a couple of years and I know he gave Sr. Roberta a run for her money! (I'm sure I did! LOL) I remember her being tough and she would get out there with us kids and play kick ball, softball or whatever we were doing as an activity. Thank you for that Sr. Roberta.

Cassandra* (not her real name) never had a birth certificate. Without one, she couldn't get a driver's license, she couldn't vote, she couldn't get a social security card, she couldn't open a bank account, and she wasn't able to obtain a real job.
