Cathy writes with clarity, and compassion, setting her thoughts on paper, yet she doesn't judge. Revealing the positives and negatives of the foster and adoption systems, this also explains a lot about the type of woman Cathy is too. ‘Nobody’s Son’ will cause heartache, however it also gives hope, that all the time there are people like Cathy out there, children have the chance to experience a loving home. ~ Liz Robinson

Nobody's Son Synopsis

Born in a prison and removed from his drug-dependent mother, rejection is all that 7-year-old Alex knows. When Cathy is asked to foster little Alex, aged 7, her immediate reaction is: Why can't he stay with his present carers for the last month? He's already had many moves since coming into care as a toddler and he'll only be with her a short while before he goes to live with his permanent adoptive family. But the present carers are expecting a baby and the foster mother isn't coping, so Alex goes to live with Cathy. He settles easily and is very much looking forward to having a forever family of his own. The introductions and move to his adoptive family go well. But Alex is only with them for a week when problems begin. What happens next is both shocking and upsetting, and calls into question the whole adoption process.
