Publisher's Summary

Experienced foster carer Rosie Lewis takes on the heart-breaking case of Megan, a baby born with neo-natal abstinence syndrome and a cleft palate.

Addicted to drugs from birth because of her mother's substance abuse during pregnancy, new-born Megan is taken into Rosie's loving care. Rosie is supposed to help Megan find her new permanent home, but it turns out that Megan has already found her 'forever mummy' in Rosie.

Rosie grows incredibly attached to Megan and applies to adopt her, but the system refuses her in favour of a young couple and Rosie is devastated. Against all her instincts, Rosie does her job and prepares Megan for her new 'forever family', but everything about Megan leaving feels wrong.

When Rosie learns a few months later that Megan's adoption has broken down, she is saddened but also filled with hope - will this little girl be allowed to return to her true 'forever home'?

    Story
    "An interesting window into the world of adoption and fostering"

    The author goes into a lot of detail about the process she and the kid had to go through from beginning to end this makes the book interesting, and the more and more exciting as it comes to a conclusion.

    There's a couple of characters whom I found not so relevant and in the end I was confused as to who was who. And a couple of others whom I would like to have learned more about.

    The first two or so years in Megan's life are chronicled very well. You can really see her going from a newborn to a little girl. I enjoyed that.

    "too long"

    there were far too many details. the narrative became tedious. the foreshadowing of impending disaster seemed an exaggerated ploy. story could have been cut in length by at least one third for possibly more impact.

    "awesome"

    congratulations on adopting Megan. This was a truly moving story. A pity social services couldn't see what was best for Megan in the beginning.
