: If any one is reading this and remembers me please contact me. I was there from around 1942 thru 1949.

Hi Pauline. I was there in 1946-47 for a bit under 2 years. I was born in 1942. My name was Paulette Bradfield then. I was adopted in 1949. I was a half orphan, and I think my natural mother was in a mental hospital during the time I stayed at the mount. I remember going to Mt. St. Helen's in the summer too. I got mumps while I was there, and there was an older girl named Pauline who took care of me and gave me ice cream. Maybe it was you? I remember Sr. Paula too, but no one else. I was pretty traumatized while there. I was just abandoned and I withdrew. I really remember the place though. Mostly fond memories, but a few bad ones. E-mail me if you like.
