A dramatic and heartwarming story from foster carer, Rosie Lewis.
Ellen, a 28-year-old office worker is so shocked by the sudden birth of her baby that she abandons the newborn in hospital. Foster carer Rosie Lewis begins visiting baby Hope in hospital, then a week later she is released into her care.
At first Rosie struggles to understand how any mother could abandon a small baby, but when Ellen begins daily visits with Hope, Rosie sees a young woman traumatised by a dark secret. Rosie wants to help the young woman and the baby in her care and must fight to bring them together.
But I had a spare hour, while the house was empty so I put my feet up and got stuck into this.
It is only around 43 pages long, or should that say short, but It is a good story.
A sad story but good if that makes any sense.
I think knowing it was true story makes it a little harder to read as it was quite sad, But still it was interest and kept me reading. The only thing stopped me going the whole hog and giving it a full 5 starts was it was too short, I know it's a short story, but this seemed a very short story.
