Born in a prison and removed from his drug-dependent mother, rejection is all that 7-year-old Alex knows.
When Cathy is asked to foster little Alex, aged 7, her immediate reaction is: Why can’t he stay with his present carers for the last month? He’s already had many moves since coming into care as a toddler and he’ll only be with her a short while before he goes to live with his permanent adoptive family. But the present carers are expecting a baby and the foster mother isn’t coping, so Alex goes to live with Cathy.
He settles easily and is very much looking forward to having a forever family of his own. The introductions and move to his adoptive family go well. But Alex is only with them for a week when problems begin. What happens next is both shocking and upsetting, and calls into question the whole adoption process.
After reading a few of Cathy Glass’s books I now know to keep the tissues to hand, you go on an emotional rollercoaster when you read her books. All the stories Cathy tells are all real and you just can’t imagine what that poor child goes through. Cathy seems a lovely genuine lady and she does an amazing job. It is nice near the end where you discover what they child is doing later on in life too.
