Publisher's Summary

The 11th memoir and latest title from the internationally best-selling author and foster carer Cathy Glass. This book tells the true story of Cathy's adopted daughter Lucy.

Lucy was born to a single mother who had been abused and neglected for most of her own childhood. Right from the beginning Lucy's mother couldn't cope, but it wasn't until Lucy reached eight years old that she was finally taken into permanent foster care. By the time Lucy is brought to live with Cathy she is 11 years old and severely distressed after being moved from one foster home to another.

Withdrawn, refusing to eat and three years behind in her schooling, it is thought that the damage Lucy has suffered is irreversible. But Cathy and her two children bond with Lucy quickly, and break through to Lucy in a way no-one else has been able to, finally showing her the loving home she never believed existed. Cathy and Lucy believe they were always destined to be mother and daughter - it just took them a little while to find each other.

Heart warming, page turner

Cathy's books have all become big favorites of mine but I like the heart warming nature of this one especially. She goes way back to cover all of the beginning of her daughter's life and I found this thorough and enjoyable.

Any additional comments?

All should read this book. The need for caregivers for foster children throughout the world is great. I found it interesting how similar the procedures were for foster children in England was with those in America yet so different. It seemed that much was done without having to go to court and kept in with there version of CYFD and not with the courts until the very end. of the process. I also found it sad how a child's biracial side for which they truly had no connection with would get in the way of a loving home. At what person do children become English, African or American- whatever country they are from, rather than a mixed race person?
