I finally finished the book They Named Me Marjorie that Kim sent me. (used your picture Kim, hope you don't mind!) I will now pass it on to Nancy. What a book! If you are not familiar with it it is written by the granddaughter (a quilter) of a woman who rode and was adopted from one of the Orphan Trains. The book was inspired/based on the autobiography written by the grandmother and found after her death.
To read about the orphan trains read the post here. I had seen Finn's blog Riding the Orphan Train but hadn't read far enough back to see this post and realize it was more than an expression. When I saw Kim's post about the book I read the blog post and asked to be put on the list for the book. This book was especially interesting to me because I work with foster children. As many flaws as there are in today's system, it sure beats the way children were treated 100 years ago!
