<quoted text>Yes, I was in Immaculata with Sr. Catherine Mary Norris and you. I hit every girls cottage except Marillac as I lived there from 1965-1975. You asked about Brioghton the Camp, it is located on Grand River, pretty much right across from Marv's Meats. If you get to Pleasant Valley Road, you have gone too far. It sounds like you have quite a family. Sorry I am just now getting back to you, I have had a lot of family issues lately. Your friend, Madeleine.

you need to contact an attorney to get access. I too am a bi-product of Sara Fisher.. It was for the most part a good and learning 3 years. What about you.
JUST WANTED TO SAY ONE MORE THING. I HOPE YOUR NEW FAMILY IS IN YOUR HEART AS YOUR REAL FAMILY. IT MAY BE A GOOD THING OR IT MAY BE A BAD THING TO FIND YOUR BIRTH PARENTS. ARE YOU READY FOR ALL OF THAT AND WHAT DOES YOUR REAL ADOPTED AND TRUE FAMILY FEEL. I WOULD AT LEAST TALK TO THEM AND SEE HOW THEY FEEL AND IF THEY THING IT WOULD BE HURTFUL TO THEM AND A BAD IDEA, i WOULD HURT THAT RELATIONSHIP FOR A RELATIONSHIP OF A PERSON THAT WAS NOT THERE FOR YOU. FILL YOUR VOID WITH THE LOVE OF YOUR ADOPTED FAMILY,,THEY CARED FOR YOU AND LOVED YOU AND WAS THERE FOR YOU I HOPE. YOU SOUND LIKE YOU HAVE IT TOGETHER AND FOLLOW YOUR HEART.. A GENTLE HUG FOR YOUR SWEET SOUL

Most of my photos were lost a couple of years ago, Cheryl, but I have some stored on my computer. When I get a chance, I will try to send them to you via e-mail. Congratulations on your 5th grandchild.

Madeleine

P.S. I used to live in Fowlerville, I wonder how often we just missed crossing paths. I used to love taking my kids to the Howell Library.

Hi Cheryl,

Currently I am living in Burton, MI. You can also look me up on Facebook. Sarah Fisher has a group that you can join also on Facebook. I am sorry about your Mom. There are no words that can make the loss any easier, but hopefully time will grant you peace.

Hi Chap,

Sr. Marie Judith has indicated they have been trying to sell the property for several years now. It appears the last deal must have fallen through. The buildings are becoming quite decrepid.

You can pray for anything you want, but often the answer is NO.

Cheryl- I have wished the same thing myself. The tears come to my eyes and my children do not understand why I get sad when we drive by that corner- but then, I cannot drive by. I enjoy remembering.
I keep hoping that the land will be used for good and what is there will be renovated and not torn down, and that it will be used to help children like it was for us, so many years ago. We all seem to have such good memories of Sarah Fisher - I hope and pray that the grounds and buildings can be restored and that they will provide similar memories for other children for future years to come.

Perhaps a grant could be secured to designate portions of the property to be used for the care of veterans as my brother wishes and for appropriate care for the mentally ill.
As for the children, I believe there is still enough acreage to support a program for youth.
One must remember, however, that unlike in our day, the laity out number the religious; therefore, a plea to the Catholic Communities in the surrounding area would have to be made to fulfill this dream, which offers rewards to the heart and not to the pocket book.

I was adopted from SFH in October/61, I was three months old. I am not sure what led me to this site this particular evening, curiosity. I was always afraid to know what SFH was like; was it harsh? Was I cared for? I read these posts and hear great affection for the sisters and the relationships. I am grateful many of you have found comfort in finding each other. Many blessings to all who have posted. I like the idea there was a strong community of care; and I love the idea that all of us were well cared for by the sisters. I would like to join the FB page, is it still active? Happy Easter.

Do you remember your classmates? There is a former classmate that has spoken of you often and I did this search for her. She was a good friend to you as she is to me.
