Behind Closed Doors – The Baby Brokers
I just wanted to keep you all updated on the final design of ‘Behind Closed Doors’ A few adjustments e,g Overall look of the cover.
I am now planning my trip to Ireland around Feb/March 2019 and hope to have you on board, please get in touch if you would like to have a short version of your story included the book.
As I have mentioned before, the royalties for this book will be donated to various committees/organisations to help with the running costs of commemorations etc.
In the event that in the very near future the majority if not all the children buried in unmarked graves will be given a proper burial and named plaques, then all monies raised for the book will also help to pay for such.
However, those who wish to have their story in the book will be credited with their name unless they have asked for anonymity.
It is important that the story/stories I tell are fact and I will have documentation and or links to collaborate such, photographs taken by me will be copyrighted and those that I otherwise obtain will be credited to the source.
Without those who are connected to the Mother & Baby Homes telling their stories there is no drive for justice, no mother should have their child taken from their arms, no child should be handed over to complete strangers unless it is a mutual agreement and done so legally.
While I fully understand that there are mothers who had their child taken away without their consent and who hold that secret deep in their heart and children who were taken away from their mothers who do not wish to persue any contact either way, please understand that what took place in such institutions was 1. Against the law and 2. Inhumane.
I cannot imagine my own child being taken from me and handed to another individual to line the pockets of the church and or state and my heart is broken at the thought of those poor little souls in Mass Graves, being buried in nothing but a cloth and with no name.
