Hi  thanks
The book is called from allotment field to Heavens gate but is not available. However I have e-mailed the authors in the hope they can give me info.
Carrie not sure how you go on re private messaging. I have a couple of pics of Assisi in the information report from the adoption agency. It would be great to get more info though I especially would like to find out what it was like to be there.

Hi I was born at Assisi in 1963 and would love some photos of the place.
If there is any mothers who were there in 63 please contact me , my mums name is Sarah Toal or Sally as she was known .Irish from Keady Armagh.
She remembers a few girls who kept their babies , one of whom visited her in Northampton later on but has forgotten their names .

I stayed at Assisi in 1968. I was there from January until the end of March. I remember having such wonderful friends there. I remember Sister Asumpta She was very popular. It was heartbreaking for the girls who had to give up their babies. I was luckier. I was keeping my little boy.  I remember the working hard.  I would love to hear from anyone who was there at the same time.

Dear Val,
Do you remember Sister Salvador. She was elderly and a bit senile, but she delivered my baby and she was really sweet.
