Publisher's Summary

A new memoir from Sunday Times and New York Times best-selling author Cathy Glass.

Eight-year-old Aimee was on the child protection register at birth. Her five older siblings were taken into care many years ago. So no one can understand why she was left at home to suffer for so long. It seems Aimee was forgotten.

The social services are looking for a very experienced foster carer to look after Aimee and, when she reads the referral, Cathy understands why. Despite her reservations, Cathy agrees to Aimee on - there is something about her that reminds Cathy of Jodie (the subject of ‘Damaged' and the most disturbed child Cathy has cared for), and reading the report instantly tugs at her heart strings.

When she arrives, Aimee is angry. And she has every right to be. She has spent the first eight years of her life living with her drug-dependent mother in a flat that the social worker described as ‘not fit for human habitation'.

Aimee is so grateful as she snuggles into her bed at Cathy's house on the first night that it brings Cathy to tears. Aimee's aggressive mother is constantly causing trouble at contact, and makes sweeping allegations against Cathy and her family in front of her daughter as well.

It is a trying time for Cathy, and it makes it difficult for Aimee to settle. But as Aimee begins to trust Cathy, she starts to open up. And the more Cathy learns about Aimee's life before she came into care, the more horrified she becomes.

It's clear that Aimee should have been rescued much sooner and as her journey seems to be coming to a happy end, Cathy can't help but reflect on all the other ‘forgotten children' that are still suffering…

Another poignant listen

How wonderful to be able to share the daily lives of Cathy, her family and the children she takes into her care.
I rarely listen to our read non fiction, but these books are the exception. I laughed, cried and my heart filled with joy as little Aimee went to live with her forever family.
Told in an easy to listen narrative, it includes all the relevant professionals, and the realistic struggles of the care system while bringing the story to life with the detail of everyday life.
The narrator does a beautiful job in bringing it all together.
i have only one complaint... i stay up too late listening as these books are very hard to put down.

Cathy glass

Cathy is a fantastic author and judging by her books she's an amazing foster carer. The world needs more kind people in it. The story was heartbreaking at times but also heart warming at other times x

Heart warming

This is a alternatively happy and sad story. It demonstrates the amazing passion of some foster Carers plus the resilience of children whose parents can’t care for them.

Another good story

While always hard to read about the terrible hardship that little ones face, it is good to hear how foster families and adoptive families can start to turn children's lives around,
