I spent some time in an orphanage before getting adopted by my mom.

My great-grandmother was given to a Catholic orphanage by her mother, and was then sold as an indenture to a German farm family in Pennsylvania.

I am glad you found an adopted Mom.

Orphanages haven’t existed since the late 1950s — except for a few countries like Serbia and Romania. Do you mean foster care?

@ABCDEF7 Any source on them being currently operated in the USA?
@ScottR Can't say. Below page may give you few useful links.

That’s traditional for orphans
