The tragic History of child welfare

This documentary video tells the tragic story of the Tennessee Children's Home from 1925 to 1950 where children of the poor, unwed, and mentally unstable were spirited away to be put into private adoptions.  Tragically we have not gotten much better.  The stories today of United States parents loosing their children to adoption are just as tragic.  Our history of generational genocide must come to a close.  Please join us in this fight.
