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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helpless As a mother myself, and a lover of Cathy, this book pulled at my heart strings a lot more than any other that I've read of Cathy's. Highly recommended for a mother wanting to reminisce on the first few months with their newborn!
