British Home Child Story

From the Toronto Star, Katie Daubs relates the story of the century-long family secret . . . and a 30-minute unravelling. Bert Jefkins came to Canada with Barnardos when, as was so often the case, a single mother was no longer able to provide for her children and had to take the difficult decision that they would be better off on the care of Barnardos.
