I am Brenda DePalma Hannon, I was in St. Joseph's Orphanage from 1959-1968 and was assigned #22. It was a pit of despair there that the Catholic Church and Nuns made your existence as traumatic as they could. What occurred there does affect my life with "triggers" I did not understand, but I am overcoming them. In the end, I chose to be happy in my life and make it what I wanted it be. They did not win.
