72 Years After Georgia Tann Stole Her from her Mother....

Devy Bunch, 72 was one of thousands of children stolen by Georgia Tann, the Executive Secretary of the Tennessee Children's Home Society in the 1930s.

Under heavy sedation, Bruch's mother - a teenager at the time- signed papers surrendering her unborn baby to Tann.

Her mother was later told she had given birth to a baby boy, who died.

Her sister had never known that their mother had been pregnant as a teenager and thought she was an only child.

"Still, the two sisters had no problems developing a relationship via e-mail along with occasional phone calls over the summer and fall months" and have had an in-person reunion.

Brunch rightly calls Georgia Tann EVIL!

Luthern & child & family services only take peoples children away for bull crap. They have no souls. They will give you things too do in your service plan, and after you do it you will be given an unsatisfactory on everything you do that is bull crap if you know what I mean. They are trying too take my rights away from my children for something I don't have, and they are discriminating against a person with a disability that is against the law they need too be sued for everything they have, and got rid of, because all they are good for is breaking up loving families

I am so sorry for you obvious pain. Both this country and Britain have a major issue with too easily taking children from their fmailies, and discrimination against leanring disabled and other disabilities. Far too quisk to remove chidlren and far too little help for families who need it. I am so sorry.
