 Amazon.com: The Home: A Memoir of Growing Up in an Orphanage: Books: Richard B. McKenzie   (Site not responding. Last check: )
While orphanages are often viewed through Dickensian lenses, McKenzie, who at the age of 10 was placed in a home for boys and girls, takes spirited issue with such disparagement.
At the orphanage, he was sheltered in a bucolic setting; came to understand relationships that were positive, yet left room for boyish longings for a mother's affection; and established the survival techniques that led to successful adulthood.
McKenzie makes a very credible case that orphanages offer a viable alternative to today's system of foster care where children are often mistreated and robbed of the chance of developing the skills needed to become successful adults.
