Notice Me!: A Barnardo Child's Scrapbook of Memories : 1946 to 1961

Suzi Hamilton


The sickly offspring of a black American Serviceman and an uncaring English woman. Dumped into Dr Barnardos and conveniently forgotten. Potentially lovable, but never loved. Bright, mischievous and temperamental; but above all, resilient. Emotionally and spiritually confused, but protected throughout by a Father she only came to know after many years. A miracle of spiritual and physical healing made her realise that she also had a Mother who really cared - I was that child; This is my story.
