Our BHCARA Fund Raising Book

Published in June of 2015, Bleating of the Lambs, is sold here and at our events, to raise funds for the work of the BHCARA. 

 Author Lori Oschefski's passion for the British Home Children stems from the need to help her mother, a surviving child migrant. Through Lori's search of her family history, she came across many others desperately seeking help themselves. In 2012 she created the British Home Children Advocacy & Research Association which, in it's sixth year now, quickly moved to the forefront of the British Home Child Awareness Movement in Canada. It is the first organization of its kind to use the social media to function and to promote the BHC story with unprecedented and unparalleled success.
   "Bleating of the Lambs - Canada's British Home Children" is Ms. Oschefski's first book. Based on years of research, it is a compelling collection of British Home Child stories, important and interesting facts and a historical overview of these migration schemes

Emma Stirling
Died Unmarried

Lori Oschefski's second book is due to be released in late 2018 or the spring of 2019.

Emma Stirling was a pioneer in child welfare, child rescue, and child emigration. She was the daughter of John Stirling of Eldershaw and his wife Elizabeth Willing. Emma's enigmatic personality and resulting accomplishments are virtually unknown, obliterated in history in both Canada and her home country of Scotland. In fact, Emma has been omitted from her very own family history, as we can see in a book written by her nephew Thomas Willing Stirling (formally of British Columbia, Canada). Released in the 1930's this book,"The Stirlings of Cadder: an account of the original family of that name and of the family of the Stirlings of Drumpellier" mentions Emma once. No dates of her birth or death are given, neither are any of her accomplishments with either child welfare or her involvement with the Temperance movement in Canada. And certainly, child migration is not mentioned. It simply says of Emma, "died unmarried". The enigmatic Emma Stirling lost her place in history. We may believe that child emigration was misguided and it certainly led to legal trouble for Emma, that aside her contribution to child welfare in Scotland, Canada, and the United States should be remembered.
