A Girl Like Her, a film by Ann Fessler

L.E. Phillips Memorial Public Library – Eau Claire Room, Eau Claire, WI
Touched by Adoption will present A Girl Like Her, a film by Ann Fessler. This film reveals the hidden history of over a million young women who became pregnant in the 1950s and 60s when “nice girls” didn’t get pregnant. Expelled to maternity homes or distant relatives, they were told to keep their secret and forget it ever happened. But did they?

Touched by Adoption is a peer support/discussion group for all members of the adoption triad: adoptees, adoptive parents, and birth parents.
