Perhaps half a million children, like Teresa, were plucked from orphanages and shipped by rail (or "relocated") to nearly every state in the Union from 1854 to 1929. Mail-Order Kid looks at the orphan train movement through the eyes of one small child who yearns to know her "real" mother, survives a tortured childhood, and ultimately, as an adult, comes to terms with her past, her faith, and herself.

Mail order kid
This was a fascinating look into the life of one child that was placed into a home by the Orphan Train.She has many issues finding her place.It is sad yet happy in spots.“I was given this free review copy audiobook and have voluntarily left this review." Marie Hoffman was a fine narrator.
