Coffee With Jeff #186: The Georgia Tann Story

29 mins - Published Sun, Sep 8, 2019 by Jeff Kelley

In the early part of the 20th century, adoption was almost unheard of. However; one woman came in and changed all of that. Her name was Georgia Tann, and she did her best to provide children to those who wanted them, as long as a profit was involved – and she would get the children any way she could, by lying or by kidnapping. She was a bad woman who took babies from the poor, so she could sell them to the rich.

Today I have the depressing story of Georgia Tann on the 186th episode of Coffee With Jeff.
