Breaking the Silence
Two Little Boys, Lost and Unloved, One Foster Carer Determined to Make A DifferenceBook - 2013
"The Watsons are astonished when they answer their front door to find their case worker with a small boy on the doorstep. Jenson is just nine years old. He was removed from his home thirty minutes earlier when it was discovered his mother had left him at home while she went on holiday with her boyfriend. A couple of weeks later Casey is in for a second shock when she is asked to take a second nine-year-old boy, Georgie. Georgie is autistic and has been in a children's home since he was a toddler. The home is closing and social services need somewhere temporary for him to stay. With her own grown up son, Kieron, having Asperger's (a mild form of autism), Casey knows this is one child she cannot say no to. The relationship between Jenson and Georgie is difficult from the outset. Jenson is rebellious and full of attitude and he kicks off at anything, constantly winding Georgie up. Georgie doesn't cope well with change and is soon in a permanent state of stress. Despite Casey's best efforts, her innate love for the children is being tested and she begins to question if she can handle Jenson's cruelty."--Amazon.
