Hope Watson (later Rohr) was one of the first babies placed at Hope Cottage. She came to us after we had only been open two weeks. Both her mother and aunt died in the 1918 Influenza epidemic when she was only two weeks old. Hope was named after Hope Cottage and for the hope that she would live. Hope Watson Rohr passed away in October 2010. One of the highlights of her life was returning to Hope Cottage in the late 80's for one of our reunion events.
We no longer live on Welborn Street and we no longer house babies in our offices (how would we ever get anything done because you know Hope Babies are the brightest, the cutest, the smartest babies on the face of the earth), but our commitment to providing the best homes for these wonderful children has never wavered. We could not have stayed "in business" for 93 years without Dallas and her caring, loving citizens. From all our Hope Babies, near and far - thank you for helping us celebrate our birthday. Being 93 never felt so good!
