Tabor Home housed, fed and shaped thousands of children’s lives in Southeastern Pennsylvania for nearly a century. This anthology contains the memories and recollections of 50 of those residents spread over six decades.

Tabor Home For Children was founded a century ago in Philadelphia but moved to Doylestown, PA in 1913. This remarkable anthology captures the memories and recollections of 50 of those residents spread over six decades. The experience of being raised in a children’s home with 40 boys and 40 girls will enlighten, sadden, amuse and surprise most readers. The individual stories are told in a forthright style expressing remorse, gratitude, anger, joy, spirituality and excitement. The book is uplifting and depressing, adventurous and predictable, happy and sad, just like life itself.

Reviewer: virginia carson
Dear Orv, Of course I believe the book was 5 stars since I got to tell the world my story. However it was interesting to hear the way others felt about it. I read sister Wilma with great interest. she had no idea that her ways were not perfect. I believe the kids who were there in the 20 and 30's had a much better time of it . Maybe sister Wilma meant no harm but if you hit kids and shun them this is what forms their development. I have forgiven her and am glad she did not suffer. The stories were well told and you could see the way the home suffered in the post was days. We all eventually have to grow up and take responsiblity for our own lives. I wish I had known you and your brother and dorothy malone. I felt that walt evans had a hard time of it. You did a great service to the people who came before you and after you. fondly Ginny Hirschbuhl Carson
