Comments:I find it hard to believe these so called servants of God, the R.C. nuns got away with these acts of brutality! They also ruined a lot of the MicMac children's lives....I also wonder why no one from St. Joseph's Orphanage has held the Gov. responsible for this abuse!

Comments:My mother-in-law who was born March 29, 1907 or 1908 in Sidney, Nova Scotia was placed in a Catholic orphanage by her unwed mother. She did learn that her birth mother's name was Cassie Davidson who later married an unknown Lively and had children with him. My mother-in-law did, as an adult, meet and visit with her birth mother and 1/2 siblings. Cassie Davidson Lively never would tell her who her father was. Hilda was adopted at 3 years of age by an older, widowed women who had a son 17 years older than Hilda. The adoptive family name was Knox. To stop the birth questions and so forth she was sent to NJ, USA to relatives or friends where later she married Frank Van Blarcom and had 8 children, living all her life and dying in NJ. The family would like to find the Lively branch and the Knox branch of my mother-in-laws family tree and possibly the knowledge of who her father was.

Comments:I was so surprised to find this site. I was in St. Joseph's 1960-1968. My name is Wilma Dunphy and my sister's name was Dorothy. Some people may not like what I have to say,but it has to be said. I've waited many years to vent my frustrations. Sr. Elizabeth Anne was a sadistic woman who beat me so many times I couldn't fathom a guess. The funny thing is I didn't do anything to deserve the beatings. If anything went wrong I would get nervous and she would take that as a sign that I was responsible for whatever. I have physical scars and mental scars that I will take to my grave. If I knew of a way I would sue the Catholic Church for allowing this to happen. We went home on the week-ends with our mother, on Sun. nights Mom would bath us before we went back. What my mother saw on my body caused her to call the police. I was bruised from my shoulders down past my buttocks, big blood blisters. Mom brought the police back with me . Sr. Elizabeth Anne denied hitting me, she said I must of fallen down!! My mother left us there even after witnissing my body. (I was five years old). My sister committed suicide at age 39 she was never able to trust people, she to as well as many of the other girls were beaten. This was a house of god, Well God forgot all about us!!! I am bitter and will be bitter until the day I die.If anyone reads this and can confirm would you please e-mail me at bandwnelson@ns.sympatico.ca My name is Wilma Dunphy.

Comments:Hello; My name is Wilma Dunphy. I was in St. Joseph's 1960-1967. Pat I give you permission to print my statements. I will help as much as I can. Please, anyone who can confirm the abuse, please come forward and remember, we were the innocent children, we are not to blame. Hold your heads up high. Don't be ashamed. I am looking for justice for all of us. I know it was many years ago, but there must be people out there who can confirm the abuses that we endured. Wilma Dunphy Nelson

Comments:My husband's grandmother, Ella Redmond, was born <1873> in August. In the 1881 census she was listed as 7 years old and under the name of Ellen Dooely living with James and Margaret G. Conrad. We always knew her maiden name as Conroy so are stumped at this information and wondered if she had been adopted. James and Margaret also lost a son of 1 month old in March of 1874 so this would not fit with another natural child " Ella" to be born of August 1873. Also Margaret was 35 in 1869 when she was married. Anyone having any information, it would be appreciated.

Comments:I lived in this place from 1962 and came back to live again at age 10 1966. I stayed here untill they decided to tear down the building. on the girls side Sister Anne Marie looked after us. On the boys side it was Sister bernica I believe. There were only a hand full of us who spend the weekend here together. We were very close. I remember the last name moore's John and Joanne. There was myself and another girl we were the first girls to ever run away from this place. It's been so long I can't remember her name. I wish some one had pictures of us. My two sisters were at this orphange also I believe in 1954 maybe not to sure on the history.

Comments: (formerly George Gavel) Re: Boarded at St Josephs' Orphanage 1964-1966 I finally got up the courage to bring my history to RESTORING JUSTICE (Roche Longuepee).It was a somewhat uncomfortable experience to rehash old memories but Roche has a way of making it all seem effortless to open up and recount the stories. He's 'been there' and can empathize with our stories. I approached Restoring Justice with the hope that whatever I can do might help others in the present and in the future. Also, I feel it might bring closure for me when I am acknowledged for the pain and memories I painfully recall far to easily(PTSD). At 52, I'm more aware of how my personality was shaped by the experiences I endured as a young boy, placed and and forgotten in these Orphanages. Whenever I feel I have it under control and see the memories as 'history to forget', someone or something will trigger a memory that louses up my day and mood, leaving me in a funk, wanting to be to 'be left alone'... Old friends from St Joe's or from the Protestant Orphanage...get in touch. Share stories. Share pics! In peace, Josh Gavel Other Institutions that I was sent to were: -The Halifax Protestant Orphanage (1969) -The Nova Scotia School for Boys, in Shelburne (1969-1971) Others who remember and want to get in touch are welcomed to do so. Any photos from back then would be very special.

We are looking for his birth mother and it is so hard to find anything. I see all over the place where birth mothers are looking for their kids and hope ours is open to us finding her. I am so sorry for some of the hardships kids had to go thru back then and I wish when seeing some pictures of babies I could hold them in my arms and love on them. I wish everyone luck in their journey thru life and wish that everyone of your childhoods could have been full of only joy and things all kids should have had.

Comments:My father and his twin brother were residents of St. Joseph's I believe between 1941 and 1947 after the death of their mother. THeir names were Donny Muise and George Muise. Their brother Ernie was also there and their sister Lorraine. However, Lorraine was removed after a short time by a family member. My father passed away in 1986 at the age of 50 and he never once spoke of his time at St. Joseph's. I wonder if you know of anyone who wrote about their time there. I would like to find out more information and find if there any records or pictures. Any help you could give would be great.

I believe she named me Maxine. I have searched for her through the normal channels but only found my birth father. She, apparently, has fallen off the face of the earth. If anyone can shed some information about Lorraine, I would appreciate it, and, Lorraine, if you happen to view this site, I turned out okay,I hope you did too.

Comments:I was born at the old Grace Maternity July '56. I was adopted to a couple who had previously adopted a boy from the Home. After almost one year the adoptive mother phoned Sister Mary Claire and told her she could not bond with me. She dropped me at the door that day ( fortunately we will never meet as I believe I wouldn't be kind) I was then placed again. I loved visiting with Sister Mary Claire and Sister John Elizabeth.....they were always so kind to me.

Comments:I am hoping that someone will be able to help me. I have a grandfather John Kelly who was born on July 16, 1872 in Nova Scotia. He lists his parents on his wedding certificate as John Kelly and Mary/Marie Power. In the 1881 census of Canada John and Mary have a son John born 1866. He is also listed in the preceding years. I did find a John Kelly born 1872 in the 1881 census in an Orphanage in Halifax, Ward 6, Dist. 9. I am not sure if this is St. Joseph's but am assuming so as this is the parish this family seem to belong to. Would any of the records of this time period still be available. John Kelly died in 1937 in Rochester, New York. Also, under his name in the census was a Robert Kelly age 4. This could be a coincidence but my brother was named Robert. Hope you can help Pat (Kelly) Larker

Comments:I just wanted to say thank you for such a great web site. I wasn't an orphan at St. Joseph's, I was adopted in St. Foy Quebec from the St. vincent de Paul Orphanage in 1961, I was 11 months old. I moved with my family in 1965, to Halifax where my Mum was from and grew up there. I went to Day Care at St. Joseph's Orphanage during the late 60's and early 70's, and can remember playing in the Chapel and outside in the back between St. pat's High School (where I eventually went to school) and the Senior Citizens Home on Windsor St. Again thank you for this great site, and for the wonderful flood of memories and connection to a place long forgotten except in our memories.

Comments:I lived at St.Josephs Orphanage in Halifax,NS from September 1964 to June 1967. My name then was 'George Gavel', a blond, bespectacled, curly haired boy with a lot of emotional issues going on, who was overwhelmed with the experience of being left abandoned in the Orphanage. I was removed from a well-bonded foster family after seven years together. My memories are both good and bad. I was alone and frustrated, living among too many boys who bullied me daily. Even Sister Joseph Bernice & Sister Leo Marie were known to throw us into the laboratory with boxing gloves on, to be beaten by one of the older boys. 'toughening up' is what thet saw it as.... I remember the multiple beatings from the Nuns...the folded/knotted extension cords, the broken yard sticks,the branches, the repeated 'cuffs' to my head... I remember being refused to urinate when I 'had to go'..as punishment. I recall being thrown into the bath tub with very hot water..as punishment for streaks in my underwear.I was forced to wear diapers as an eight-ten year old, whenever I didn't 'wipe' myself well enough!Or if I wet the bed...and I did, nightly... I was placed in closed cupboard, under small chairs or in a chair in the middle of the room, for the other boys to taunt and tease me. I found that the trouble makers took pleasure in bullying me and the Nuns seemed to be amused to watch this without stepping in to stop it...ever! The oddest thing was for us all to be paraded down to the local Funeral Parlour to say 'the Rosary' for the dead...or to be taken out into the community to sing as the Orphanage Choir...I hated that..it was so humiliating, from my perspective, out there for all to see us in our 'orphan-ness'...I hated for anyone to know that I was a 'bastard'! Those were fighting words to me... Three school years is a long time to a small boy. When I got out, I was a mess!! I had issues around bed-wetting, trust, anger and bullying, self-esteem and especially bonding. I was angry with the World! I was 'damaged goods' as a result of their 'care'... St Josephs shouldn't have existed to begin with...the damage they caused us from their non-stop belittling and rudeness..has left me with memories that,sometimes, haunt me. I survived 32 foster placements...and St.Joseph's was the worst one of the bunch!!Honestly!! "Working for the Lord" was the excuse I heard most often, whenever I complained about my abuses. "They couldn't have done that...they are working for the Lord." No investigation...no believing the boy who was hurting...nothing!!I came to trust nobody.... I don't have many good memories of the place...a few friends who watched out for me...good food...weekends away to visit with the family I was pulled out from. Repeatedly running away to them forced the Sisters to look at allowing me visiting times with tht family... Going back to live with them after those three years, was a disaster! I was untrusting, angry and lashing out at every opportunity. I was oblivious to the possible consequences for my behavior...even threats to be 'moved on' to an other home was not a good tool to have me behave... I taunted and dared them to do it...and they did!! Because of how the Orphanage treated me for those twenty-two months of abuse and neglect, I was left with life-long issues that have harmed my relationships, friendships, jobs, homes...everything! It's been a whole lot of work to bring myself to where I am today. A successful business and a good family life...with the occasional 'blip' in how I perceive and react to things...but I guess we all have our 'issues' and it's up to us to help ourselves! Some have written much more positive stories about St Josephs...It makes me wonder if we got preferential treatment and I was the scapegoat. Names I can recall: Joan, Gary and Diane Comeau Jean Carter John Moore Clarence Foster Micheal & Teddy Deutchkoff(sp) Brian Robinson and sister..and brother removed in the middle of the night, to ??? Carlos Vetez(sp) Keven Marchand(sp) I have a photo of some of us at Camp Villa Maria. Does anyone else have pics from the 1964-1967 times? Please get in touch...to share how we survived and moved on and made good lives for ourselves, despite the ways we were raised! All the very best, to you, my fellow St Joe's "Survivors".

Comments:I went to the St. Josh Mission in Halifax in the early 70's. I have no idea if this was the orphanage or not. I remember being there and not wanting to take off my new shoes and lie down on the cot and have my nap as they called it. The nun or whoever took me with them to check on the babies in another room. My adoptive parents only told me I went there not why or anything more about it. I was adopted more than once and I am wondering if maybe I was in the orphanage for some time and they just did not want to tell me. The funny thing about it is I still remember the shoes as clear as bell. They were blue with a strap that was held on by a button.

I hope, with your family and children, you have made your peace and are enjoying a good life. I am hoping to adopt a child. I have my own but ever since I was a kid and my best friend was adopted, I always thought about it. It is very difficult and expensive to go abroad so I started looking here in Canada. Laws have changed and it's next to impossible here...I have faith though. If it is meant to be, it will happen. I noticed that your mom died around 70 and actually re-married and had other children. I wondered why she had not kept you and your sister?... Really none of my business..really, but just curious. And your dad too died in his early 50's and still lived in N.S.?? You mentioned that you were hoping to find a picture of him....I hope you did. I wish you well and really hope you are happy, Sorry for being nosy... Chris

Comments:I along with my brother were amoung the abused at the hands of Sister Joseph Bernice and Sister Mary Clair at the Orphanage in the 60's. We were sort of boarding at the Orphanage and went home on weekends if we were allowed. For this we paid dearly in extra abuse because "we had a mother and the other boys did not". Many stories and memories still rebound in my brain, and not the good ones. I must say that all the times were not bad and I remember Camp Villa Maria with fondness especially one time that we were allowed to go swimming in a hurricane (tied to a rope). I loved this place till the reality of life came back and some other reason to get backhanded in the mouth came along. The Sisters loved to dole out the physical punishment!!!

Comments:We just found the St. Joseph's Orphanage site tonight. I was in the orphanage for 2 years, with my sister Rosaline and brother Vincent. After reading the comments, it's not hard to see that many of us experienced abuse and the long term effects. It saddens me to think that this was allowed under the guise of religion. I certainly can relate to the hatred and bitterness experienced towards the nuns, and the anger towards God for allowing this to happen. I questioned how a God of love could allow this type of abuse. But now I see that there is always hope to be found in the midst of misery and despair. I was glad to find healing from many of the hurts and pain I had experienced as a child. Sometime in the future, I'd like to get together with the other survivors as we share our lives' journeys. Does anyone remember James Chaisson? I also met a fellow by the name of Carl who had vivid, disturbing memories from there. Thank you for having the courage and strength to share.

Comments:I am searching for my mother, Mary Kathern Gosson, birth parents. Her birth certificate states she was born in Plympton Station, Nova Scotia. Near Digby. She was born April 6, 1929. She would never talk about it and asked that we not look into this while she was alive. She died in 2005, here in Sudbury Ontario where she lived with me for 2 years before that. She said she was adopted but there is no official adoption papers for her -I have checked. I Have been to Halifax, vital statistics, Dalhousie University, public archives,and Catholic Archdioeses in Halifax as well. I can find no record of mom anywhere. I have been looking since 2005. She was conditionally baptized in St. Patrick's parish in Lochaber, Guysborough county, Nova Scotia. She was raised in Giant's Lake, Nova Scotia> I have been back to Nova Scotia several times talking and checking to many, many people and but have come up with nothing. I still have relatives on my dad's family side in Pomquet Pt. Nova Scotia so we are always travelling when we can back home. I feel we her children(there are 7 siblings ) should have this information because we are a very close family and would like to have the very private information for our family. If anyone has had a similar situation and has any incite into what to do next please don't hesitate to contact me. Thankyou. I am losing hope! Theresa

Comments:I lived at SJO from 1964-1967. I went on to survive almost 30 more foster homes and other Institutions. The child that nobody could get through to was 'damaged' as a result of living at SJO for three years! Sister Joseph Berniece and Sister Leo Gerard... a sad excuse for 'Workers of God'!! Whipped, beaten, neglected and verbally trashed... It's a wonder we did survive.... I've reunited with some of the people I remembered from my stay at SJO. W've all struggled and we all still work to improve our lives. Some of us, including myself, have changed our names and/or have gone to the west coast to get as far away as possible from our pasts. I live in BC now. My name is now Joshua...always hated that folks called me Georgie!Reumiting with my birth-mother wasn't a good experience but it ended the wondering and answered so many questions about myself and my roots. "It gets better".... Well...it does, but it's a lot of work to knock down those thought patterns that were embedded into us by the cruel words and meanness of the nuns at SJO! I am amazed that it is taking a lifetime to find ways to heal my wounds but I 'am able' to and that pleases me. I live a comfortable life now, with a partner of 22 years...an adoptee.We seem to understand each other.... Still working on issues and welcome input and discussion with others. If you remember 'George' with his dark glasses and blonde wavy hair...usually under the pile of boys beating me up... Be in touch... Look me up on Facebook! Wishing all of you the very best in life..

Comments:In 1984 I traveled to Halifax in search of my family history. I simply looked up "adoption inquiries" in the phone book, called that number and was directed to a location where I was given copies of all my court records. This was amazingly simple.My sister and I were at St. Joseph's from 1954-1956. To add to my previous comment, I did love the orphanage. At the same time. I do remember some rough treatment by the nun in charge of our dormitory. When I picked up photos of my sister and me, a kind nun apologized for that nun's cruel treatment of the orphans and told me she was removed from the orphanage in a straight jacket. wow!!

Comments:I am searching for the missing link in my family history. In early 1920's or later a mother of 7 children with the last name of Cooke entered an orphanage in Nova Scotia. She left behind 5/6 of her children not because she wanted to but because her husband left and she could not take care of them. I was told her name was Amanda Cooke and she would stand outside the gates everyday looking in at her children in despair. Some of the names I have Ada, Mabel, Gordon. My grandmother was old enough and she didn't have to go there, her name was Hildegard Blanche Cooke. Anyone who went there in that time frame with knowledge of the "Cooke" children please contact me. I believe they are all deceased now but finding the relatives would mean the world to me. Thank you

Last year December, My lover was cheating on me and was not also give me the attention that a man should give to a woman,And really that was troubling my mind and tearing my heart apart to the extent that i was not concentrating in the office the way i use to before the break up by my lover.And before that incident,I always see how my boss use to love his wife so much. I was begin to think that i was not doing the right thing to him that will make him love me forever,So i really gathered my courage and went to my boss wife office to ask her the secret that made her husband love her so dearly,In the first place she refused in telling me,She asked me why i am asking her such a question,That if is it not normal for every man to love his wife.I told her the reason that made me ask her about this question,That my lover started cheating on me lately,When i knelt down before her for her to see my seriousness in this issue that i went to ask her,She opened up to me by telling me that i should not tell anybody about what she want to tell me,The wife to my boss started to say to me that she used a very powerful spell on his husband to love her,And the spell that she used is harmless, But the spell is just to make him love her and never to look for any other woman except her. I QUICKLY ASK HER HOW DID SHE GET TO KNOW THIS GREAT,POWER,DURABLE AND PERFECT WORK SPELL CASTER,she said that a friend of hers also introduce her to him. Then i also ask her how i can meet with this spell caster.SHE SAID EVERYTHING TO ME,THAT THE NAME OF THIS SPELL CASTER IS Dr. IMOMOH TEMPLE .My next question to her was how can i get this wonderful spell caster,She said she is going to give me the email of the spell caster for me to contact him for my problem,Really she gave to me this spell caster email and i contacted him and explained all to him,And after every thing that needed to be done by the spell caster, In the next two days, My lover that hated me so much came to house begging for forgiveness and i was so glad that i have finally gotten my heart desire..I was so grateful to this spell caster for what he has done for my life.. So i made a promise to him that i will always continue telling the world about his wonderful work towards me and also to other that came to you before and also the people that will also get to you from my story that i narrated online now..I will want to say to the entire world that you should not cry over noting again, That there is a great man that has been helping individuals to restore there Joy and smile in there faces !!

Comments:My name is CATHERINE , My husband left me for no reason on 24th of NOV 2012. He moved in with another woman, I felt like killing myself. I've tried different spell casters and went to different temples to pray but all to no avail. My life was very bitter and sorrowful. Then one day, a friend of mine told me about a DR. that is very good and does not even charge for his services, he said he gave him some lucky numbers that he played in a lottery and he won. I didn't believe it because I've worked with so many of them and it didn't work. He begged me further so I decided to try this great DR. called UZARO. I contacted him and I gave him the necessary information. He didn't ask for anything but he said after the spell works, I can pay anything in appreciation. I still didn't believe. I used the spell he gave me and the next day which was on the 29th of Nov, 2012 I received a call and it was my darling husband JAMES. He apologized and came back to me. He even gave me 10,000USD as a means of compensating me. I'm now a very a happy woman. Thank you dr.UZAROSPELLTEMPLE@YAHOO.COM I will forever be grateful to you. You can reach him on his email: dr.UZAROSPELLTEMPLE@YAHOO.COM He can solve any problem. Try him today and thank me later

Comments:I want to say thank you thank you thank you to Ancient Drosobaspelltemple for everything so far. To everyone who doesn’t believe in spell, I was one of those ones at first. I wasn’t quite sure if I wanted to do this since I’ve tried others so-called spells casters and they did not work and was a waste of my time and money. However, when I read through the testimonials of other people at this website and after I talked osoba who answered all my questions and was very nice about everything, I decided to give it a try. I figured it would be my last try to get my guy back. So my story is that I was at my office when the guy I am in love with told me that he wasn’t in love with me and never will be and that he didn’t want to speak or see me again, especially since he was talking to this other girl. When I talked to Dr osoba, he let me know which spells would be most appropriate for me and I chose the ones that was to get him back to me and stay with me and want to marry me.As soon as he started on the spells, my guy came back into my life! It was a miracle to me and I’m so thankful for that. Things have been going well, and pretty much according to what Dr osoba said would happen. He’s always there when you need him and that’s also after the spell is done. I’m still waiting for the spells to completely manifest, but with all that has happened so far I’m very happy because given only four months ago in March, if you asked me or my friends if I would have anticipated how things were right now…no one would believe it!

Comments:An amazing testimony on a spell caster who brought my wife back to me.. My name is Johnny, i live in USA,and I’m happily married to a lovely and caring wife, with a kid. A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my wife. so terrible that she took the case to court for a divorce. she said that she never wanted to stay with me again,and that she didn’t love me anymore. So she packed out of my house and made me and my child passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get her back,after much begging,but all to no avail. and she confirmed it that she has made her decision,and she never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my wife. So i explained every thing to her,so she told me that the only way i can get my wife back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for her too. So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow her advice. Then she gave me the email address of the spell caster whom she visited, and i decided to contact the man, after a brief explaination to this man, he asked me for some info about my self and my wife which i immediately told him and he assured me that before 2 days my wife shall come back to me begging, it was like a dream to me when my wife actually came back after 2 days begging and crying for forgiveness, right now we are happy again and my family is good again, i thank this great man Dr Odigie for his help, you can contact him on this email if you have similar problem, Email: lovespellsolutionhome@yahoo.com

Comments:There are so many thoughts, memories and feelings that I would love to share but don't even know how or where to begin. I was at St. Joeseph Orphanage in Louisville, Ky. from 1966 to 1976. My two brothers Michael Seidler(deceased) & Frank Seidler were also there and at a later date; 3 younger siblings were there for a short time. I just want and need to say at this time that although ALOT of abuse DID occur during our stay there ... I find peace in the memory of the good things we did experience. Sr.s Bonita, Regis, Nunilo. Jean Thomas, Irene, Paulette, Rosaria,Gelita ... And many others I did not list were true woman of God. I pray for the souls of the other Sisters who were sadistic & abusive. My thanks to Father John for many things; the rocks, pictures & love he gave sustained me through many tough situations while there. I pray for the children, who ... like my brother; Michael ended up so severely scared by the experience that they left this world way too early. I invite any of the "inmates" of St. Joeseph to contact me if they would like. I also encourage the alumni to look closely into what is now occurring at St. Joeseph regarding the ongoing hostile take over of the Board of Trustee's and subsequent repercussions of this matter. Peace be with you. Deborah Seidler

Comments:My name is Elizabeth Taylor from UK. I never believed in love spells or magic until i met this spell caster once when i went to Africa in may this year on a business summit. I meant a man who’s name is PROF. DUMGA (dumgaspells@live.com) he is really powerful and could help cast spells to bring back one’s gone, lost, misbehaving lover and magic money spell or spell for a good job or luck spell .I’m now happy & a living testimony cos the man i had wanted to marry left me 3 weeks before our wedding and my life was upside down cos our relationship has been on for 4years. I really loved him, but his family was against us and he had no good paying job. So when i met this spell caster, i told PROF. DUMGA what happened and explained the situation of things to him. At first i was undecided, skeptical and doubtful, but i just gave it a try. And in 8 days when i returned to UK, my boyfriend (now husband) called me by himself and came to me apologizing that everything had been settled with his mom and family and he got a new job interview so we should get married. I didn’t believe it cos the spell caster only asked for my name and my boyfriends name and all i wanted him to do. Well we are happily married now and we are expecting our little kid, and my husband also got the new job and our lives became much better. His email is dumgaspells@live.com

Comments:Life can be very miserable especially when we lose the ones we love and cherish so much. In this kind of situation where one loses his/her soul mate there are several dangers engage in it. One may no longer be able to do the things he was doing before then success will be very scarce and happiness will be rare. That person was created to be with you for without him things may fall apart.That was my experience late last year, but thank God today i am happy with him again. all thanks to PROF DUMGA, i was nearly loosing hope until i saw an article on how PROF DUMGA casted a love spell to make lovers come back. There is no harm in trying, i said to myself. I contacted him via email: dumgaspells@live.com. Words will not be enough to appreciate what he has done for me. i have promised to share the good news as long as i live. Email: dumgaspells@live.com
