Ingrid Steel

Biography

When Ingrid Steel was first put into an orphanage at the age of four, she did not even know her real name. Nor would anyone tell her who her parents were, or what had happened to them. After years of bullying, deprivation and gratuitous punishment - even sexual abuse - in a series of homes and orphanages, she was incarcerated first in a borstal, then in a mental hospital.

One day after returning to the orphanage, Ingrid made a secret pilgrimage to Somerset House in London to discover her real identity. She came back in triumph clutching her precious birth certificate – only to have it taken from her. That was the last straw.

Desperate to be free to live her own life, she forced her way out of the orphanage and into the cold and wet. Would she at last be able to lead a life of freedom?

Little Girl Lost is the first part of Ingrid Steel’s shocking, heartrending life story.
