Thanks for your reply. I do know about CLAN but did not join because my Childrens' Home was in South Africa. CLAN only seemed to cater for Australian States.
It took some years before I finally received a half page of my so called records from NH in Cape Town, detailing the dates I arrived and left that awful place. They finally acknowledged that I WAS there after telling me that there were no records of me ever being there. The years are still not correct and I have given up because they told me that there are NO other records of anything relating to me and I know that it is a total lie. So typical !!!!!
I have never sought counselling as I have always coped with whatever life threw at me. Unfortunately, I don't know of any support groups except the websites relating to other Nazareth Houses around the world. I think that some "victims" find solace in discussing their stories with others on the internet but it's not my idea of counselling etc.
I am merely trying to make contact with anyone who was at Nazareth House in Cape Town, South Africa during the years that I was there, for a number of reasons.
I have joined a number of Children's Homes Groups on the internet but have yet to find one person who was with me in Cape Town. However, I did find one friend who was with me, through one of my Genealogy message boards. That was very exciting.
Regards and Hooroo,
