Riassunto: Were going to take you kids,"" he pointed at each of us sitting on the couch and said our names in a sing-song voice, ""Jackie...Tommy...Helen...David...and Nancy,"" pausing between each name as if to prove he knew them, ""to see a school tomorrow, a boarding school, see how you like it."" He said this in a voice that implied it was temporary, like wed have a choice about attending. With those words, the Canfield siblings began a journey that profoundly shaped their formative years. Home Kids is Nancy Canfields courageous retelling of her familys dramatic story and the inspirational story of St. Agatha Home for Children. From the immigrant orphans of the 19th century to the crack babies of the late 20th, orphanages like St. Agatha Home for Children provided physical and emotional shelter for thousands of destitute children and escorted them into the mainstream of American Society. Home Kids is the powerful and heartfelt story of St. Agatha Home as told through archival records, newspaper accounts, and compelling first-hand interviews with former residents who found nurture and hope at St. Agatha Home for Children. All profits from the sale of Home Kids will be donated to St. Agatha Home's many foster and group homes and the New York Foundling Hospital.
L'autore: After leaving St. Agatha, Home Kid Nancy Canfield married the owner of a Nanuet candy store in 1972. They moved to California in 1977, where Nancy raised her son, Danny, and her daughter, Eva. She became a business woman and then a writer. She is now a Realtor with Prudential California Realty in Rancho Bernardo, California. She was inspired to write ""Home Kids"" after she found a former St. Agatha roommate on the Internet. Their correspondence kindled Nancys interest in exploring the meaning of St. Agatha for herself and her family. Following the 2001 reunion at St. Agatha, she resolved to chronicle the legacy of St. Agatha for herself and her classmates. It took her four years to bring ""Home Kids"" through the research, writing, and editing and into the light.
