Overview

A Baby's Cry by Cathy Glass

What could cause a mother to believe that giving away her newborn baby is her only option? Cathy Glass is about to find out. From author of Sunday Times and New York Times bestseller Damaged comes a harrowing and moving memoir about tiny Harrison, left in Cathy’s care, and the potentially fatal family secret of his beginnings.When Cathy is first asked to foster one-day old Harrison her only concern is if she will remember how to look after a baby. But upon collecting Harrison from the hospital, Cathy realises she has more to worry than she thought when she discovers that his background is shrouded in secrecy.She isn’t told why Harrison is in foster care and his social worker says only a few are aware of his very existence, and if his whereabouts became known his life, and that of his parents, could be in danger. Cathy tries to put her worries aside as she looks after Harrison, a beautiful baby, who is alert and engaging. Cathy and her children quickly bond with Harrison although they know that, inevitably, he will eventually be adopted.But when a woman Cathy doesn’t know starts appearing in the street outside her house acting suspiciously, Cathy fears for her own family’s safety and demands some answers from Harrison’s social worker. The social worker tells Cathy a little but what she says is very disturbing . How is this woman connected to Harrison and can she answer the questions that will affect Harrison’s whole life?

As a former foster-mother for infants, I could relate so well to this story; it brought back all the good memories of the special times with the babies before their adoptions, but also the saddness and difficulties of letting them go to their "forever-family." Even so, our hearts are fuller, and our own children are richer, for having these precious ones in our lives--even for a short while.

Cathy Glass is an amazing author. She really knows how to tell a story in a way that gets the reader invested. Once I got this book, I couldn’t put it down and was thrilled that it has a happy ending. A true page turner. Great book!

I have now read several of cathy glass's books, and while this is a slower read, it is definitely that happiest book I've read. Its a little long and i honestly skimmed through some parts, but it's still a great story.

I've read several of Cathy Glass's books, and this is the happiest one. No abuse, no trauma, and it's about a baby, which makes it even sweeter. It has the happiest possible ending

Heartwarming read!! How can such things happen to the innocent children....I am so happy that there are people in this world like Cathy Glass who gives her all to these innocent babies along with raising her own children. I will be reading more of her books as they are very touching. Thank you Cathy Glass for bringing to books what life is like for some children and families.

I have read many Cathy Glass books but this one was mediocre at best.

I did not care for this nicely edited, 278 page book. It is based in England and is about their foster care system and one of the care givers. Cathy the foster mother does not have another job, has two children of her own, is divorced and did not spend any of the child care stipend. Yet she was able to do all sorts of things and provide well, for her family. This was very dry reading. No adult themes of any kind. No humor, no romance, no religion, no cursing. The baby's mother was from India, but the author kept refering to her as Asian. This is a true story. First person. AD

Poor taste and what one can expect to get for 99 cents.
