Ninety-year-old Ruth Kane was born in 1925 to a young unwed mother in central California.

She was placed in the care of a close-knit farming community for the first seven years of her life, before returning to live with her biological family. Her great-granddaughter Melissa brought her to StoryCorps, where Ruth told her about some special messages she received as a child.

This story was recorded in partnership with the Atlanta History Center, which hosts Atlanta’s StoryCorps Booth.
