5.0 out of 5 stars An insight into Foster Care, 7 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Crying for Help: The Shocking True Story of a Damaged Girl with a Dark Past (Paperback)
I am a Foster Carer, but do not do the specialised fostering that Casey does. I have little ones up to 5 years old and that is hard enough. I am full of admiration for Casey and her family. Fostering is a way of life that affects everything you do, and Casey I feel puts the story across in an easy to read way that has you struggling to put the book down.
People have compared her to Cathy Glass. They are both Foster Carers, but have their own stories to tell. I would recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in this field. I do think it would benefit Foster Carers and the children in their care if all Social Workers had to read Casey and Cathy's books as they may then realise the impact these children have on us, and the difficulties that arise from lack of support. At least a Social Worker can go home at the end of the day !!

I think the work that foster carers do is wonderful. I was a social worker for 30 years (now retired) and championed the rights of foster carers all through my career. However I do NOT believe that thee books by Cathy Glass and C asey ? are true. There is no way that a foster carer would be permitted to put into the public domain (a book) any details about children they have fostered. In any event if Kathy and Casey were fostering so many damaged children, where on earth would they find time to churn books out one after the other!! Would you have time to do that, even if it was permitted, and as a foster carer you will be only too well aware I imagine of the need for absolute confidentiality. I think these women research child abuse and then make them into "stories" and make lots of money.
