I haven't been on here for ages but have just watched Long Lost Families.
That *was The Quarry wasn't it in the first story?

I am searching for anyone who was at the home in March 1962. I was born there to a lady called Brenda and I believe a twin sister too. Nurse Barrett delivered us. Can anyone shed any light on how to confirm this?

Hi does anyone know where I can find out the information on who the babies was adopted too? My mum had a little boy on 21nd Dec 1958, she said she named him Barry but his adopted parents name him John.
Thanks
Ann.

My Mum had my eldest sister at the Quarry in June 1951. She was only 16, thankfully unlike most of these poor girls her family were understanding enough and let her keep her baby girl.

Even though she never really reflected much on the day to day workings of the place, she did often recall the fun she had with the friends she made while she was there.

One girl in particular was named Anne, my sister was subsequently named after her and I'm proud to say every female in the generation since has Anne in their name somewhere!

Unfortunately neither my Mum nor my lovely big sister are with us any longer but the bond they had from their challenging start was like no other I've witnessed between a parent and a child.
