Elmira Cassiday ran the Willowbrook Orphanage in Newport News, Virginia. She was horrified when she learned her lawyer, William Harrison, used the orphanage to sell children into slavery. A broken woman, she left the state.

Her children put her in a nursing home in Cherry Lake Farms, Florida, and ignored her for 10 years. She wouldn't do much, just sit in the sun, until one day, one of her old orphans, Donna Troy, came to visit. She found a second life, and even attended Donna's wedding.
