According to People, the comic initially “needed to maintain the infant,” however residing life as a pregnant teen with out a supportive household was tough. “I bought on welfare and rented a room for 50 bucks a month. I turned on the water, and cockroaches got here out of the spigot. Outside, there have been drunks. I simply could not go on there, so I went away to Denver and moved right into a Salvation Army house for unwed moms,” she mentioned.
Nine days after her child woman was born, Barr positioned her little one with the Jewish Family & Children’s Service, who reportedly had a pair “that had waited seven years for a Jewish child.” Barr recalled that tough day. “[The] day they got here to take my child away, I whispered to her, ‘You keep in mind this, I’ll see you whenever you’re 18.’ I all the time knew that. I all the time knew we might get again,” she mentioned.
Barr finally did reconnect together with her daughter, named Brandi Brown (pictured proper). “We simply held on to one another, trying into one another’s eyes and crying as I advised Brandi how a lot I had missed her for so lengthy,” she mentioned (by way of People).
