Oh my gosh, having an adopted son and issues too numerous to mention, his outcome may have been different had we had assistance available when we asked for it in the 60's. We asked for help & were told by the N Z Police, we can not offer you any help as he has not come to our attention. You are a legend Cathy Glass and I really love the lengths that you went to to assist Ian & Elaine and Anna. Great outc ome.
I've read a few Cathy Glass books now-by no means very many of them-but this one is a bit different. Cathy's narration doesn't appear until about half way through the book because at first we have the back story to how the child she is about to foster came to be in care. The story is told through the couple who are hoping to adopt a child from a foreign country. Elaine and Ian haven't been able to start a family. All they want is a child, and adopting abroad seems to be the perfect answer....but there will be many hurdles ahead.
I enjoyed reading this just as much as her other books I have read so far and finished it in just a couple of days. Cathy Glass' books are so easy and quick to read and often keep you guessing how things will turn out. Looking forward to the next.
