I was there at the time connie was hit and killed by the truck. I can not remember her last name.

I am 40 now and yes we all went through the same thing.

Hi, I am looking for anyone who was at the Bethesda Home for girls during 1977 to 1880.  I spent 2 years there, not by choice.  I was there the first time when Beth, the girl who was hit by the train and had her leg cut off, was there.  I was sent there at 15 and left right before my 18th birthday.  I knew the Barnwells very well during those 2 years.  I would be interested to hear anyone who was there at that time.  I reccently found a copy of the "Family Altar" book on the homes for May of 1978 from my parents basement.  There is a photo in there of the 5 girls that were in charge of all of us at that time.  I am 44 years old now and am just now cruising the web to see if anyone else experienced what I did.  We SOOOOO weren't aloud to talk to one another about how we really felt inside.
Thanks
I am 45 now .I was there during that time .Please contact me. My email address is   charlottedanos@yahoo.com

Hello, my husband was adopted and all that he knows about his birth mother is that she was staying at Bethesda Home for Girls during the timeframe of her pregnacy and his birth.  He believes her name my have been Ruth Ellis and she was approximately 16 at the time.  He was born on June 4, 1973 at Forest County General Hospital in Hattisburg.  He would love to locate her to see how she is doing.  If you have any information that would be of help to him, we would greatly appreciate it.  Thanks so much, a caring wife.
