Transcribed biography of Harris

Submitted by Susie Harris

My family is a big one. We have 10 all together. Their names and ages are: Cindy, 18 and out of school; Pattie, 16; Joe, 14; Roxanne, 13; Mona, 10; Gaye, 5; Corey, 1 1/2 ; Aunt Karen, Uncle Dennis and I am 12, my name is Susie.

We were living in South Bend and my Mother was in the hospital for about 3 months, then she died of cancer. My Dad was out of work. All of our Aunts and uncles lived in Alabama or Nebraska, so my Dad took all of us to Alabama and we lived with our Aunt Pat and Uncle Brewer. We lived in Alabama for about a month. Then Aunt Pat and Uncle Brewer talked to our Pastor in South Bend, because my Aunt didn't know what to do with us. Our old Pastor said to put us in the Baptist Children's Home in Kouts, IN. Now we live in Kouts three years in the Children's Home. We love our houseparents very much.
