Overview

Child C: Surviving a Foster Mother's Reign of Terror by Christopher Spry

In April 2007, 62-year-old Eunice Spry was sentenced to 14 years in prison for the systematic wounding, cruelty, and assault of the vulnerable children whose welfare had been entrusted to her. Her home had become a prison where over the course of 20 years she routinely abused and tortured her charges. Behind closed doors she was a sadistic tyrant who beat her children with metal bars, forced wooden sticks down their throats, and made them eat lard, bleach, vomit, and feces. In this harrowing account, one of the victims of Spry’s wrath—known during the trial as Child C—tells the full, shocking story of his enforced isolation and the psychological and physical abuse he endured. Despite years of suffering and abandonment, with his mother now behind bars, today Christopher Spry is a survivor with a zest for life.

This is a story of pure evil. The "mother" is sadistic and seems to love it. It is hard to believe in this day and age something of this magnitude can still take place. I shudder even thinking about all that was done to these children. Her 14 year sentence is not near enough in my opinion.
