The Storrings Brothers (In Foster Care)
by Murray Storrings, Dennis Storrings and Glen Storrings




Glen, Dennis and Murray Storrings were young children in the 1940s when they were made wards of the child welfare department in British Columbia. In the following years, the three brothers would live in over a hundred foster homes between them, sometimes together but often separated. After a childhood of instability, abuse, and neglect, they turned to lives of crime and were sent to reform schools and prisons before eventually becoming hardworking men who married and had children of their own.

In their early years, an ever-changing network of social workers kept meticulous files, and this riveting memoir weaves together the Storrings brothers’ memories, with entries from their case files, to tell the harrowing, heart-breaking yet inspiring story of three boys who were repeatedly failed by a system that was meant to protect them.
