    I trained at St Patricks infant hospital 1985/1986 I remember some of the babies names. Was Godmother to at least 1 baby there, I remember mostly 2 things, how loved all the babies were and how well cared for they were, I also remember being on night duty one Christmas eve/Christmas morn and there was a little music toy that played when you wish upon a star and I played it and sang along to the babies most of the night

    On the one hand it is genuinely nice to read that the place where I spent the first twelve months or so of my life wasn't a complete hell hole - that there were people there who cared for our welfare.

    But on the other hand if these babies were truly loved they would never have been taken from their mothers in the first place.

    Looking back at this comment I think I could have phrased it better as it reads as though I'm suggesting that the nurses didn't truly love the babies and that was not my intention.

    Hi, I was born in Mount Carmel 06/02/1980. I was adopted through St Patricks Guild about 6 week's later. Id be grateful to speak to any staff that worked there over that time and learn about the place where I spent the first weeks of my life. If any of you who worked there are reading this, thank you for all that you did.

    Looking back over some documents I mistakenly believed i was there for 6 months when it was actually 1yr 6 months. Its a strange feeling that I had no mother for that time. First step or words were inconsequential. All worked out in the end though :)
