    1. This was one of the harder to read books from Casey Not because of horrible tales of abuse found in many of her books But because of the deep love and bonding between mother and daughter Abby wasn t abused in the normal respects She was deeply loved by a mother with a chronic health condition Multiple Sclerosis Because this type of illness comes in spells Abby s mother had taught her from a very early age how to manage things around the house to help her out She made schedules and lists of thing [...]

    2. I am currently reading the books of Casey Watson that I have not read yet I really enjoy her books, they are similar to the works of Cathy Glass not sure who started writing first telling of what it is like to foster children and in Casey s case, Children who many other Foster carers couldn t handle This story very much hit home for me as it is about a child who has to go into foster care as her Mum has to go to Hospital, as she suffers with MS The Social services realise that the child has actu [...]

    3. So I anticipated the worst out of this book, having read a few of these sad narratives about the lives of some foster children In the beginning, I thought it was Sarah doing the abuse what happened to Abby is considered abuse, of course, but not to the extent I was expecting it to be when it was clear that Sarah had done nothing, I wondered if it was someone from their past, someone who was possibly related Then, Vicky came into the picture Up until it was revealed who and what Vicky is, I thoug [...]

    4. This is the second book I have read by this author and foster carer The system is very different, than what I worked under many years ago, in Texas and Alabama They have many people working above the foster carer a supervisor, a social worker for the child and one for the parent, and a committee of some kind, who decide the method of care This book deals with a nine year old girl, who had been caring for her mother, who had MS When I was working, I found little children, who helped take care of [...]

    5. Excellently told by Casey Watson with a lot of insight to fostering children with needs Although this little girl wasn t seen to be in a specialized bracket as uncontrollable or unable to place, so Casey thought that apart from looking after her while her Mother was in hospital suffering a relapse due to MS, it would be straight foreward, it turned out not to beAs a sole carer myself I know how hard this can be, how it takes up your life and you have no life of your own The impact on your physic [...]

    6. My third book of Casey, and I get annoyed by her style of writing every second, so this was also my last book The upheaval of herself and her family goes on and on and on I am shocked at how naive she seems to be, since everything she is shocked or surprised about, is something every person with a bit of common sense can see coming I find it hard to believe the story s other books as well are true because they are so far sought But true or not, I am glad how the story ended and it brought child [...]

    10. My Review I am unable to say whether I enjoyed this book or not because it reminds me of my own childhood when I was growing up The only thing that I can say is that you need to read it for yourself to get your own opinion.

    13. I m happy this story brings to light the plight of children caring for their parents Children often are so accustomed to being responsible it never occurs to them to tell others about the heavy burden they shoulder couple that with a parent who stresses not to tell, and a child suffers in immense silence It is extremely important that teachers, child care providers, neighbours, friends, et cetera report their concerns to child protective services so the children do not suffer Please remember tha [...]

    14. The best aspect of this chapter in the life of a foster parent teacher is dealing with the unexpected perceptions, manipulations, and reactions of parents, along with the bureaucratic consequences It s especially frustrating when you are doing what you believe is right and in the end, everyone appreciates your efforts, but along the way, you are accused This experience had a happy ending for all involved It s rare enough, but even lucky in this challenging circumstances It shows how people who [...]

    21. Abigail s story is very unfortunate as a young child she can t imagine life without her mom, so when her mom becomes severely debilitated, Abigail becomes her non stop caregiver Mummy s Little Helper was depressing, but there s a light at the end of the tunnel.
