Cathy Glass, "Another Forgotten Child"
 English | | 2012 | EPUB, MOBI | 304 pages | 1,3 MB

A new memoir from Sunday Times and New York Times bestselling 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 Cathys house on the first night that it brings Cathy to tears.
Aimees 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 Aimees life before she came into care, the more horrified she becomes.
Its clear that Aimee should have been rescued much sooner and as her journey seems to be coming to a happy end, Cathy cant help but reflect on all the other ‘forgotten children that are still suffering¦
