    Hello. I was at Elim in 1972. I was 16 years old. I was made to work in the laundry with no wages. Was not allowed to see my daughter after she was born, only once for 5 minutes. A nurse was in the nursery all the time so no one could go in. My baby’s father was not allowed to be with me. He never saw our daughter, who was adopted. Had no counselling, there was no single parent pension. i was very alone. My mother could visit me. I saw my daughter once, was not allowed to open the blanket she was wrapped in……..a sad memory.
