May 21, 2015, And, it continues. During the last 9 days we have seen gatekeepers of the legacy of the Pearl S Buck – Welcome House adoption agency, most likely catalyzed by the upcoming New York City – Lincoln Center premiere of Pearl: The Musical, delete not just reference to ‘Pearl S. Buck’ but entire entries integral to describing the experience of Canada Scoops victims placed in USA, a.k.a. USA Placed Victims-Survivors of Canadian Scoops. Their efforts, while aimed at protecting her legacy, have the effect of Undermining the experiences of these victims which isn’t something we will, within our capacity, allow them to continue to do.
Yesterday we were optimistic when we read that these advocates of Pearl S Buck legacy were no longer denying the role of Pearl S Buck – Welcome House adoption agency in the placement of Canada Scoops victims in USA; instead, they are now claiming that at the time that Canada Scoops victims were being trafficked from Canada to USA via Pearl S Buck Welcome House adoption agency that Pearl S Buck had no control over her own affairs, no control over the work of Welcome House adoption agency. More, they claim that – and how well this fits into the story line of a musical production couldn’t be more serendipitous – her affairs were taken over by a dance instructor from New York City’s acclaimed Arthur Murray Dance Studio. Why they held that information – so apropos to a musical story line – back until confronted with Welcome House adoption agency role in placing Canada Scoops Victims in USA, is a wonder.
We are working today to restore the entries that describe the experience of victims of Canada Scoops placed in USA while allowing for this change-introduction of an Arthur Murray dance school instructor into the explanation.
