Excellent in depth detailed research job presenting an important and fascinating history I learned a lot reading this book about a place and time a specific and particularly bad example of a home for unwed mothers and a particular phenomena women shamed and bullied into having and giving up their babies paying fortunes to do so all to sell babies to other desperate families Also presents really interesting context on social work in Nova Scotia and the wild west of adoption nonregulation up to the 40s or so It would have also been really interesting to provide contextual analysis why so many women were driven by shame in that era how it has changed and what hasn t what the implications are today I was surprised how rarely abortion is mentioned in the book Also that the later echoing phenomenon of the sixties scoop wasn t mentioned at all

characters Ù Butterbox Babies Baby Sales Baby Deaths The Scandalous Story of the Ideal Maternity Home ´ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Home coincidence neglect accident or economicsButterbox Babies is a story of greed hypocrisy and justice It is also the moving story of children who survived the Ideal Maternity Home and their search for a past Bette Cahill traces their lives today as their search leads them from disappointment to rejection and in some cases the joy of reunion with the parents they never knew. A tragic tale very very sad It is outrageous how people can be so focused on monetary gain as to disregard mother baby bonding and sell babies for profit Next to this the fraud charges that Lila and William Young faced pale in comparison The fact that so many babies remained lost without a paper trail and that so many people the few still alive are still looking for answers is truly heartbreakingI realize it must be hard to write a book like this keeping only to the facts and rumors and refraining from embellishing but I found that the writing was dry I m not faulting the author necessarily but there you have it
