We called it the home: vignettes and memories from my 13 years in the Ohio soldiers' and sailors' orphans' home by Janice Daulbaugh Steele-Gouch
Added September 13, 2019

At just five years old, Janice Daulbaugh, along with her three siblings, was sent to the Ohio Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Orphans’ Home in Xenia, Ohio. Her touching, and at times incredibly difficult, journey began the day she left her grandmother’s house and ended the day she graduated high school from the Home. It’s a story through the eyes of a child, then a teenager, and finally a young adult; a story that reveals why she cried when she entered the Home, but cried much harder when she left—for good. —Summary from publisher’s website
