Product Description

Product Description

The third in a series of true short stories from foster carer Mia Marconi.

Brody had been on the at-risk register since birth but was only removed from his alcoholic parents when he reached the age of six. Foster carer Mia Marconi was thrilled when he first arrived – a boy the same age as her son.

It can be so bewildering for foster children when they arrive. The older ones are usually withdrawn and sullen. The younger ones will be screaming, spitting at you, making themselves sick and throwing themselves on the floor.

For Mia, it’s normally her boisterous, happy children who provide the comfort at the beginning, because why should they trust another adult. Children always feel safe and secure when there are other children about. Mia believes it’s through making relationships with other children that they begin to trust adults again. But little did she know that six-year-old Brody was actually taking his anger and frustration out on her son. She quickly begins to realise the heavy price her family has had to pay.

Mia Marconi writes the most realistic books ! And I have been a foster carer for 20 years I,ve read other books by foster carers but find Mia tells it how it is ! It is refreshing for a carer to say how fostering affects your own families and life's rather than dramatising stories

5.0 out of 5 stars Like all of Mia's books, this one is spellbinding. 26 Sep 2014

As the former foster mother of 56 children I understand how much joy there is in helping a child live a better life, and heartbreaking when nothing works.
5.0 out of 5 stars ... had similar experiences - even though you do feel like you have failed the children at the time 12 Oct 2014

As a fellow foster parent it is reassuring and helpful to read about others who have had similar experiences - even though you do feel like you have failed the children at the time. It would also be good if all new social workers read books written by foster parents to gain an understanding of their perspectives and hopefully listen and think before acting impulsively.
