I was in the Los Angeles Orphan Asylum from 1959-63. It was where life began for me. I was 12 yrs. old and had been a Ward of the Court since I was 4 years old. It is heaven on earth. Traversing the system of fostering in America, I was a maid with my clothes in paper grocery bags. I was also brought into Child Protective Care facilities throughout the bay area in California many times by a police car. Maryvale is still here with us, and children with terrible pasts are lucky as I was to get there finally. You will love them. joyce barash: thesis: "I was once a lost foster child; Now I am Found," can be ordered through the State University Library System (Sonoma state university, 1996)
