Larkspur couple help families find institutionalized relatives
#1 Jun 7, 2009
"Where is Molly?" a heart warming story, yet reminds us of the ugliness of what has happened, and continues to happen, when some selfish parents have children with disabilities, learning or physical. There is (was) no reason to institutionalize such children. Such places are ridden with stories of abuse and neglect, while parents like the Daly's lived high on the hog. At least the father had some conscience, but it appears the mother was the one who was more ashamed of not having a "perfect child".
I am glad to know the siblings were reunited as a result of the search and commitment of Jeff Daly.

I had a friend in 89 that had returned home after his parents put him in a boarding school.They were trying to hind him because he was learning disabled. After about a month of him being home he decided it was best that he returned home. I felt bad for him because his family made him feel unwanted.

This is a beautiful story. My only reservations are that they waited until the parents passed to find Molly. So many years she suffered alone. And the power that the rejecting Mother still yields from the grave - shame on her. Thanks to Cindy and Jeff for making a difference, giving back, and doing the right thing. You are heros.
