The paper interviewed Mary Louise Morgan, a spokesman for St. Vincent’s, who said the childcare agency is concentrating on getting a new statue. “The children who lived in this building when it was an orphanage helped design it,” she said. “The statue’s physical characteristics reflected their diversity.”
