NACOGDOCHES- The Riders on the Orphan Train program will arrive at the Nacogdoches Railroad Depot on Thursday, June 27th. After the Civil War one of the most gripping of New York’s social problems was the abandonment of infants in the streets of the City. In 1869, it had no longer become an item of news, or even of interest, to find an abandoned infant on the doorsteps of a rich family, in the hallway of a tenement, or at the entrance to a convent. In 1930, a Social Service Department was established in order to provide casework services for unmarried mothers cared for in the Shelter. The Foundling Hospital also has a training school for the training of young ladies as Infant Care Technicians, a Pediatric Clinic for foster children, a Prenatal Clinic, a Development clinic for children being considered for adoptive placement, and –its newest service—a Child Guidance Clinic.
In 1958 in order to carry on the work of the New York foundling Hospital and to give adequate coverage to the number of dependent and neglected children in need of care away from their own homes, the buildings on 68th Street were replaced by the modern fire-proof building equipped with all the facilities necessary to carry out a program according to the highest standards of child care.
The unwavering faith, hope, and Christ-like charity with which Sister Irene opened the first Foundling on East 12th Street have characterized the unique dedication of the Sisters of Charity, staff and volunteers who have carried on her work to the present day.
Priests in towns along the railroad routes were notified that the Foundling had children in need of homes.
Between 1854 and 1929, more than 200,00 East Coast orphans were sent to the Midwest by train to find new families. The modern protagonist, Molly, might have a better chance of success, no thanks to her foster family. The book is a quick read, and interesting enough, though even with the dire circumstances described I failed to become emotionally involved. Petrea’s new release Act As If is available from Amazon (Kindle and paperback), and locally at Flintridge Bookstore and Coffeehouse, as well as at Hoopla! Originally organized by minister Charles Loring Brace to rid New York of homeless street children and provide them with an opportunity to find new homes in the developing Midwest, this nearly eighty year experiment in child migration is filled with horror stories and happy endings. Poverty, immigration, inadequate housing, and a financial depression were the factors which made abandonment in ever present evil. Peter’s Convent called the attention of Mother Mary Jerome, the Superior of the Sisters of Charity, to the need of rescuing these children.
Joseph By The Sea, at Huguenot, Staten Island, was opened as an annex to the New York foundling Hospital. It was about the same time that professionally trained workers were added to the staff of the Boarding and Adoption Departments. It is our prayer that -that unique spirit—the spirit of Christ—will continue to guide those who have dedicated themselves to the work of the New York Foundling Hospital in the years to come. The priest would make an announcement to his congregation and ask for volunteers to take the children.


Still selling strong, it’s a favorite with book clubs and readers of historical fiction. As the trains arrived in town after town, the children were displayed in the same way livestock is shown to potential buyers. According to a brief history in the back of the book, more than 10,000 abandoned, orphaned, and homeless children lived on the streets of New York City at any one time.
Maybe that’s because most of the characters felt like two-dimensional stereotypes, and the ending was predictable and too pat.
This program is a 1? hour multi-media program that incorporates video, music and audience discussion that sheds light on the largest child migration in history. The trains stopped in pre-selected towns where people interested in taking a child would assemble. Peter’s Convent on Barclay Street was a favorite refuge of distraught mothers and very often the Sisters on opening their door in the morning, would find a tiny waif deposited on the doorstep. When the matter was as placed before Archbishop (afterwards Cardinal) McCloskey, he not only sanctioned the plan of providing an asylum for the care of abandoned children, but urged the Sisters to put this plan into execution. At that point, adults could sign up for a child, specifying hair color and the color of eyes they preferred. Charles Loring Brace and the Children’s Aid Society, which he founded, had good intentions as the abandoned orphans who were sent sent away often lived squalid, desolate lives on the streets. These were often immigrant children, perhaps more common in an urban area than on a Midwestern farm where, if they spoke English at all, their accents were strange and they didn’t fit in. When she’s required to do community service for stealing a book, an elderly white woman named Vivian makes her an offer. Yet these strange events actually happened, to over 200,000 children, not so very long ago. She contributes book reviews to Hometown Pasadena, for which we and our readers are very grateful. Children not chosen were put back on the train and many were shuttled from family to family and town to town. It’s a good thing she does, because she has to be resourceful in some very adult situations before she hits the age of eleven.
Vivian needs help cleaning out her attic, and Molly has an opportunity to get her community service hours by assisting. One such request was for a boy with red hair because the farmer had 5 red haired daughters and no sons. Brace believed that hard work was the only way to teach children to live a good, Christian life and save them from the depravity they faced growing up.


Three days later on October 11th, the Feast of the Maternity of Our Lady, Sister Irene and her two companions, Sister Teresa Vincent and Sister Ann Aloysia, moved into a small house at 17 East 12th Street. Although they expected to spend three months in preparing for the opening of the institutions, an infant was laid on the door -step that very first night. However, in their new homes, some children faced beatings, terrible living conditions, and even slavery. Before January 1, 1870, the proposed opening date, they had received 123 babies.Within a year, a larger house at 3 Washington Square was secured. It was a legal document that gave the Foundling legal recourse without going to court, should the placement not be satisfactory and the child had to be removed.Often called an early form of adoption, it was not adoption as we know it today, because with adoption a child is legally a parent’s natural child. Indentured children that were not legally adopted were ineligible to inherit unless the adults left a will specifying the indentured child was to be given an inheritance.
In 1870, the State Legislature authorized the City to grant a site for a new building, and appropriated $100,000 toward its erection on condition that a similar amount be raised for the same purpose by private contributions.Sister Irene at once set to work to take advantage of this help and organized a committee amongst some of the leading financiers and business men of the time. The construction of the buildings on the property bounded by 68th and 69th Streets and by Lexington and Third Avenues was begun in 1872. Through the years other buildings were added until the Foundling Hospital was completed.While the building was in progress the services of the institution were expanding.
Shortly after its establishment, the Foundling became a refuge not only for abandoned babies but also for unmarried mothers.Another important development was the inauguration of the Boarding Department.
Because of the lack of room in the late house on 12th Street, the Sisters asked their neighbors to care for some of the infants in their own homes. Thus was inaugurated, on November 15, 1869, the Boarding department of the Foundling.As soon as Sister Irene was settled in the new building on 68th Street, she established the Adoption Department to find suitable permanent homes for those children who were legally free for adoption.
The date of the first recorded placement of a child in a free home, with a view to adoption, was May 1873.In 1880, one of Sister Irene’s dreams was realized when St. Anne’s Maternity Pavilion was erected, in order to shelter friendless, expectant mothers, whether married or unmarried, and to provide proper confinement care for them. Anne’s was opened in 1915 to outside physicians who wished to send private patients for confinement. Anne’s Maternity Pavilion was closed to private cases in order to expand and improve services to the unmarried mothers who were the original objects of Sister Irene’s concern.In 1881 St. John’s Hospital for Children, and Pediatric Service of the New York Foundling Hospital was erected. John’s was discontinued in order to expand and improve services to well children in need of care away from their own homes and thus meet an urgent need in this community.
