Forever in Our Hearts is the heartfelt rendition of one woman’s perspective of growing up in an orphanage in Washington, DC, in the 1950s and 1960s under the care of the Daughters of Charity. Her story begins when she and her younger sister are taken from their comfortable home with relatives on Capitol Hill to live in the institution. The changing mission of the Catholic Church and Catholic Charities and the diminishing census at the home brought a closing of St. Vincent’s, but the ties to those devoted nuns have never been severed. The story describes how every morning “Sister” would turn on the overhead light and pray, “Live Jesus.” The girls would respond, “Forever in our hearts.” Ms. Smith invites you to relive those experiences that she has cherished, through her anecdotes and the voices and spirits of her many sisters.
