I was just curious as to just how many people in here remember Paradise Friendly Home. I have been trying to find the old Home kids and, so far, I have only been able to find two. One lives near the old home and the other lives in Murray. I would like to get a reunion together if possible and would like to see just who would be interested. Although I was not officially a "Home Kid", my parents did live and work at the home and I was accepted as one by many of the other kids.(We were there from 1966-1969--my Dad preached at Bell City) If anyone is interested in a reunion, feel free to let me know so that we can get in touch.

Sometime in the 60's, my parents and I would go to the Home on weekends and bring a baby home with us. Her nickname was Puddin. I think her name was Ruby. Her mother lived at the home with her. We heard she was adopted by a family in Nashville, Tn. Does anyone know her? Would love to know how she is.

now back to topic,
i know that mrs.pritchard,a retired 5th grade teacher at sedalia,that was her parents that ran that home.she has tried for years to get another place together for misplaced children,she is 70 and is a foster parent,she cares so much about kids!she
even got together with my cousin and tried to get a grant after my cousin spent almost a million dollars on building a youth camp,then had to stop buliding cos he ran out of money and no one would help hes just trying to sell it,it would of been a great thing if it got finished.
i remember at sedalia alot of those kids would come to school,and my mom explained to me what an orphanage was,and i cried.still to this day,makes me want to cry to see kids go through such things.

I was at Paradise Friendly Home for about 7 months or so back in 1976 with my 2 sisters and younger brother. I have both good and bad memories from there that I wouldn't trade for the world. I remember having my first crush on a girl I went to school with named Julie Miller. I was saddened to learn of the place closing and the web site is up for sale.

Does anyone know of a girl named Mary Robbins that may have been at the home sometime around 1962 - 1970?
