Description

Elaine Henderson Author:

My story about my childhood in care and about my journey to finding my true family and origins

We all know about Long lost families on tv with Nicky Campbell, well this story has all the twists and turns of the programme so much so this story would need a programme on it's on, don't take it from me, come along and listen to Elaine's story.

Elaine tells about the stark realities of a ripple effect, felt through the generations, created by that very first decision to place a child into care, are revealed in Believe. As a child, I lived in a world of secrecy, under a pseudo-idyllic so-called ‘care’ system. I tell my story about how it felt to be in care and describe the oppressive emptiness of not knowing who I am, who my true family are and ultimately who my real mother is. Believe is my quest to find the answers to my many questions and to find the family I belong to. You will read about the rollercoaster of emotions I endure and the revelations I uncover on my journey of discovery. There are stairs to the venue which is not suitable for wheelchairs.
