Norma's Story

To all participants of the Pedro Pan movement and anyone else involved in giving thousands of Cuban children the right to choose. I honor you and salute you. Thank you. Thank you to my father an honest abiding citizen that had to lie in order to give me a chance to live in freedom!

I ended up (with 5 more kids) in an orphanage in Chicago sometime in April 1962 Does any one know the name of it? And where it was located?

Norma: If you don't mind, I would like to help you find the Chicago orphanage where you were relocated in 1962. As you can imagine, there were many orphanages in the Chicago area in the early 1960s. For me to be of any use, however, I would need you to answer the following questions to the best of your abilities: 1. Are you sure it was located in the city of Chicago? In Cook county? 2. Was it a Catholic orphanage? Were there nuns running it? 3. Was it for girls only or for both boys and girls? 4. Did it consist of large buildings or was it divided into smaller cottages? 5. Did it have many children? In the hundreds? 6. Does the name Angel Guardian Home (also known as Angel Guardian German Catholic Orphan Society of Chicago) ring a bell? 7. How long were you there? Were you placed in a foster home afterwards? 8. Let me know any additional characteristics/features/qualities you might vaguely remember. In the event that you can't answer any of the questions above, I will be glad to forward to you a complete listing of denominational and nondenominational orphanages in the city of Chicago. Drop me a line whenever you can. José Antonio.
