About the Book
“I was an orphan then, I am an orphan now, and I will always be an orphan.” For years, people have told Shelby Adams Lloyd that she should write about her life growing up in the Oxford Orphanage in Oxford, North Carolina, and how she lived and worked while learning a trade there. Shelby finally sat down at the computer and started her story of living in the orphanage. She took a deep breath as she remembered what she went through and how she overcame the rejections she has felt since being a child. Always an Orphan is a loving memoir of a unique childhood where family, to this day, are the orphans Shelby grew up with, and home is the orphanage she looks back upon with pride and love.
