What make this all the more shocking is that this is a true story and at times the story brought tears to my eyes. It was very short and I read it in under half an hour but enjoyed every minute of it.
I look foward to reading more by this author.
As a baby I was fostered (in the early 60's - being not only illegitimate but a mixed race baby) my foster father ended up being one of my god parents, when I was christened. He subsequently died when I was 15/16 late 70's, the first funeral I attended.
My foster mother died about 16 years ago, but she continued to foster, & often was woken by police in the early hours to collect a baby & or young children that were taken from their parents for their protection.
Their house was also full of love, you could feel it as soon as the front door was opened.
WTG Rosie Sara will know where she came from & the pains of her start in life, my Aunt had a few of her foster children come back for visits, some with their own children to show off to their foster Mum, because of the excellent start they were given as babies, & as toddlers, were supported to understand that, not all people inflict pain, & that the majority of people will not harm them in any way.
A brilliant read for people who know nothing of the life of a foster carer & their charges. :-)

A truly inspiring book. It gave me a real insight into what makes a good foster carer and that is the ability to love unconditionally someone else's child.Published 1 month ago by Pendlewitch
