Bestselling author and foster carer Casey Watson tells the heartbreaking true story of a teenage mother and baby in need of a safe and loving home.
At fourteen, Emma is just a child herself and one whos never been properly mothered. She has been in foster care several times already and when she discovered she was pregnant, and refused to have an abortion, her mother threw her out of the house.
Casey and her family instantly form a strong bond with Emmas baby Roman, but dealing with Emmas behaviour and constant lack of responsibility is a far tougher challenge. And before long Casey finds shes doing something she never thought she would covering up for Emmas shortcomings as she allows her personal involvement to colour her judgement.
But the more Casey gets to know Emma the more shes convinced that with the right help and guidance this lonely and unsupported girl can become a good mother to her gorgeous little boy. Thats what makes it even harder when Casey and her family have to make a stark choice: to hold on to Emma or look after Roman; to help a teenage girl desperate to turn her life around, or offer an innocent baby a safe home and much-needed good start in life.
