CRUEL TO BE KIND
Fostering 6 year old Max got off to a bad start when his mother telephoned me with threats and complaints even before he’d moved in. I hoped our relationship would improve with time. She was in hospital recovering from having two toes amputated.
Yet, while I’d heard plenty from Max’s mother and his social worker I had very few details about Max, so when he arrived I had a big shock which I struggled to hide. Clearly looking after Max was going to be a completely new challenge but I would do all I could to help him. A kind, gentle and studious child he struggled to fit in and wanted more than anything to be like other children and make friends.
