A man in Ireland has filed a lawsuit against the children’s home which forcibly removed him from his mother and put him up for adoption.
Terry Doran, now in his fifties, said that the nuns at the home forged his mother’s signature in order to dispense with her consent and move him across the Border when he was only a few months old.
Mr Doran was adopted and raised by a couple in County Derry after he was removed from his mother for being unmarried.
Kevin Winters of KRW Law, the solicitor representing Mr Doran, is alleging negligence by a failure to take care of the plaintiffs at the Marianvale home, forcefully separating them, removing Mr Doran to another jurisdiction and concealing the true circumstances of the separation from his mother.
Mr Winters also said that the nuns’ conduct was “clandestine and gratuitously cruel”. One of the nuns told Mr Doran’s mother that her baby had gone and she would never be able to see him again.
The nuns say that the adoptions carried out at the home were all done in accordance with legislation.
Mr Doran and his mother were reunited in 2010, after 46 years. At the reunion, she told Mr Doran, “I never gave you away, you were taken from me. I woke up in the morning, the cot was empty and I was sent home”.
Speaking to the Irish Times on Thursday, Mr Doran said, ““It looked like she had waited all those years to tell me that.”
A hearing for the case took place today. A further review has been listed for September.
I find it incredible that a child can be taken from his/her family, all of his/her family & forcibly adopted by strangers.
The religious orders were a law unto themselves but no different from social workers today barely out of uni with no life experience at all but who arrogantly think they know best.
I hope he wins his case & this opens the floodgates for all other parents to sue.

One thing is seems is sure; be sure your sins will find you out. The religious orders concerned are certainly finding that out now; sadly, too late for many of the victims.

Similar situation to Philomena Lee and her Son Anthony who was taken away by Nuns and Adopted. she searched for him for 50yrs and suffered the same lies and deception along the way.
This iceberg is going to be some size indeed.
All those involved in this trade of falsifying documents and selling off babies for Adoption deserve all that is coming to them. as for those who have already died they should have their grave stones removed for falsely representing Jesus Christ.
MP Michael Gove is a whole different story. he knows he was Adopted yet made the decision Not to search for his birth parents as he doesnt want to upset his Adoptive parents. Very troubling to say the least.
Heaven help us if this man becomes the new PM.

“As I have received no response in regard to my letter dated 2019.04.19 Do I conclude my daughter has been cast adrift to Ireland as compared to a third world country?”

“With due respect and without a reply to my letter dated 19th April, 2019,
How long must I wait as I have registered contemptuous note of pitfalls of numerous errors on the part of social workers acting in respect to my daughters interests must I wait for a letter from my daughter aged ten plus in her own hand expressing that she is alive, in good spirit health and well looked after?”
