Here's a link to April's British Home Children Newsletter in case you haven't seen it.

Thank you very much.  Don't have any Home Children so far in my family but know one of them worked for one of my uncles at one time.  I read the book that was published & was horrified at how many were mistreated.  Only a few were treated well.
I've found two (maybe four, pending confirmation).  It's surprising how many children were involved, and not only to Canada.  I don't have the numbers handy, but children were also sent to Rhodesia, South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand.
Really appreciated the article.  Interesting that Rob Ford is mentioned in one part.  Most people, even Americans, know about him.  Thank you very much for posting that.
