about

My name is Susan Drew.   I was born Joan Fagan on May 16, 1949, in the ST Patrick's Mother Baby Home on the Navan Road in Dublin, Ireland.  I am one of the thousands of babies who were illegally adopted or export to the United States by the Catholic Church while the Irish Government looked the other way.​  This is my story and the story of illegal adoption in Ireland.  My name is Joan was produced and directed by Margaret Stapor Costa
