Description

Three-year-old Lexie, five-year-old Amelie and thirteen-year-old Leo come to Maggie after Leo confesses to a teacher that his mother's addiction problems and her latest violent relationship has left him as the sole carer to his younger sisters.   

Maggie welcomes the three children into her home and is touched by the gentle care Leo shows to the two little girls. It is clear that Lexie and Amelie adore their big brother and rely on him for comfort and reassurance. But Leo has experienced the neglect and abuse of his mother and her partner for far longer than his sisters and is struggling with an eating disorder and showing signs of OCD.  

When Social Services begin to look at adoptive families for the children, Maggie is horrified when Social Services suggest that the two angelic little girls will have a much better chance of being adopted without their damaged older brother. Knowing the impact that losing his sisters forever will have on vulnerable Leo, they face the ultimate dilemma. Should the children stay together and dash the hope of them ever having a forever family? Or do they sacrifice the close bond between the siblings to give the girls a chance to be adopted?

Heartbreaking story of Social Services are work

A very well told TRUE story of how Social Services work, how they don't listen to the CareGivers that know the children best! I was crying through the last few chapters!

Ups and downs

This book is wonderful! However was so hard on the heart to listen to. I cried lots of tears both happy and sad . I hope and pray they are all doing well now and still get to see each other.

My review

This book was amazing and gripping up until the last page. It is so sad that families have to be sometimes separated but it is also such a blessing that the children in these heart breaking stories have loving people like Maggie to help them through.
