One to tug at your heart strings, this is an emotional and thought-provoking read. Faye is 24, she has learning difficulties, lives with her Grandparents and is pregnant. Cathy steps forward to foster Faye until she has given birth, the plan is that Faye’s baby will then be adopted and Faye will return to her Grandparents, however plans often have a habit of going awry. Cathy Glass writes under a pseudonym, she has fostered for over 25 years and published many stories relating to the children in her care. Cathy has a clear, simple style of writing, yet her sensitivity and compassion shine through the pages. I found myself questioning myself, my thoughts and feelings as I read. ‘Can I Let You Go’ is another fascinating and captivating read from Cathy Glass. ~ Liz Robinson

Synopsis

Can I Let You Go? A Heartbreaking True Story of Love, Loss and Moving on by Cathy Glass

Can I Let You Go? is the true story of Faye, a wonderful young woman who may never be able to parent her unborn child. Faye is 24, pregnant, and has learning difficulties as a result of her mother's alcoholism. Faye is gentle, childlike and vulnerable, and normally lives with her grandparents, both of whom have mobility problems. Cathy and her children welcome Faye into their home and hearts. The care plan is for Faye to stay with Cathy until after the birth when she will return home and the baby will go for adoption. Given that Faye never goes out alone it is something of a mystery how she ever became pregnant and Faye says it's a secret. To begin with Faye won't acknowledge she is pregnant or talk about the changes in her body as she worries it will upset her grandparents, but after her social worker assures her she can talk to Cathy she opens up. However, this leads to Faye realizing just how much she will lose and she changes her mind and says she wants to keep her baby. Is it possible Faye could learn enough to parent her child? Cathy believes it is, and Faye's social worker is obliged to give Faye the chance.
