About Anne Harrison

My biography is divided into five themes

  1. Abandonment - I was abandoned as a baby by my mother who came from Barbados as part of the Windrush generation.
  2. Transracial foster child. I was fostered for nine years by a white family but they emigrated to Australia.
  3. Children's home life. I was placed in a horrible children’s home until I was 17 years old.
  4. Confusion. I had a lot of confusion about my identity.
  5. Mystery. There was a lot of mystery about the whereabouts of my mother and father.
