Publisher Description

A dramatic short story from experienced foster carer Rosie Lewis.

Baby Sarah is born to a crack-addicted mother on a freezing cold night in December. Rosie is woken a few short hours later, at 1am, and taken to the maternity unit by police escort to collect the infant and take her to a place of safety.

But it soon becomes clear that Sarah is suffering from severe withdrawal symptoms. Knowing that separation is inevitable, Rosie tries to maintain a professional distance but that’s easier said than done.

Great descriptive read

Great short read. Rosie paints a descriptive picture of not only what it's like to be a foster carer with a family but a clear picture of the vulnerable children that come in to care. Can't wait for the other books.
