Hello, I get so sucked into your books I can’t stop reading them. I have been reading your books since I was living at home with my mum who also read them. We would read the same book at the same time and talk about it. Now with my own children with a husband and house I read them and it totally switches me off. There needs to be more people like you in the world. I have often wondered if I could foster when my children are older. I have recently had a miscarriage, your books took me away from reality and make me realise that it could be a lot worse. When I read your books I honestly feel like I know you. I love that you include your own story and about your kids too. You really are an inspiration Cathy and I hope you will keep fostering and writing for years to come! Keep safe

Hi Cathy. I have just Innocent – another amazing book where you did an outstanding job in helping children. My heart was beating out my chest on the final page. I am beyond hurt and angry for you, the way you were treated and not being allowed to say goodbye was evil! You literally saved their lives. I hope the children are happy now. Look forward to Neglected next month. All the best Cathy and family.
Hi Cathy, I have just discovered your books and would like to thank you for sharing your fostering experiences with us. I have just finished “A Long Way From Home” which only took me one day to read as I was absolutely hooked. Anna’s story was heart wrenching but I was pleased with the ending. Kind regards

Hello Cathy, thank you for writing these books, I’ve read every single one of them and I’m excited to read “Neglected”, that is announced on my birthday! You really made a change in my life. I didn’t have a stable home as a child. My mother had a bipolar disorder and my father was addicted to alcohol, cocaine, and everything. My mother passed in 2010, and I went to live with my grandparents. They did a wonderful job and did all they could. But despite all their efforts, I still struggled every day to find a daily routine. You helped me realize that’s what is ‘wrong’ and how important it is for a child to find safety, security, and confidence in a normal daily routine. That’s what I liked the best of sleeping over at grandma’s house as a child. Everything was predictable and I didn’t have to worry. Thanks to you, I try my very best for my daughter to get a routine and become a better parent. Lots of love for you and your children, and dearest grandchild! Thank you again for making me realize how I can change my life, and be a better parent for my daughter.
Hi I am reading all your books at the moment and loving every one of them. You are amazing
Hello Ms. Glass, I have been reading your books nonstop for the past couple of months. I can easily say that you have become one of my favorite authors. I only have two books left to read, and after that, I will be eagerly waiting for Neglected. While I am very lucky to be part of a loving and stable household, your books have helped me understand that not everyone has such luck. Through reading the memoirs, I almost feel like I know your family. Your books have so greatly moved me, and I am planning to pursue a degree in education, and foster. You and your family deserve everything in the world, and thank you for making this world a better place for countless little children! Best,

Hi Cathy, I just wanted to let you know how much I love your books. I have gotten through about ten now and I just keep going. After studying law I have decided that I would like to be a social worker and am now studying that because of your writing. I know how frustrating it will be but I’m prepared because of your books. You seem like a wonderful caring person and I just wanted to thank you. Can’t wait for Neglected.

Hello, I started reading your books about a month ago and can I just say how amazing you are. I’ve read a couple so far and I can’t put them down. They are gripping and so interesting. You are such an amazing woman who has made these amazing children have homes. I cannot wait to read more of them and hopefully buy all of them and collect them. Thank you
I have 5 of your books. I think these stories are extremely sad, emotional and heart wrenching. I am a survivor of abuse but nowhere near the level of these children. You are a kind hearted and caring person and I take my hat off to you. I really don’t know how you manage. I find it really hard to put the books down when I start reading them. You are my new favourite author.

Hi Cathy, I’ve just finished reading, The Night The Angels Came. What a moving story and what a brave little boy. You told it with such clarity, I really appreciated how you explained so clearly your responses. It was so insightful. Thank you for all you do and for all the children and families you help and have helped. You are a true inspiration to us all.
Hi Cathy, I have only just discovered your books! They are wonderfully written and heart-breaking at the same time. You have worked wonderfully with all your foster children and have inspired me to want to work in social services. I currently work in Early Years like your daughter Lucy and am studying my level 5. You have taught me new ways to communicate and deal with certain behaviours with children and hope to become a wonderful mother like yourself one day! All I can say is Thank you. And that I have 25 more books to buy and read!! Kind regards
Hello Cathy Glass, I have been reading your books for almost 18 years now and I have to say I love them so much. I have all of the books you have brought out so far. My daughter was taken into care and my son was adopted. I wanted to say thank you for writing your books as they have helped me in a way I never thought possible. Reading your books helps give me more of an understanding into what it is like for the carer and the foster child. It took me a few years to be able to read your books after my children got taken from me. I was so angry with myself as well and the social service but I now know that they only did what was best for the children at the time. If it hadn’t been for your books I don’t think I would have been able to cope as well as I have. I wanted to say thank you so much for being such a fantastic author and all the work you do for the children you look after.
Hi Cathy. I have just finished reading ‘Cruel To Be Kind’ and I loved it, so happy for Max’s happy ending! I was on the edge of my seat when you wrote ten years had passed and you hadn’t heard anything and then the card arrived. Many thanks and all the best Cathy and family.
Hello, I am a young student, studying to become a librarian. I finished reading one of your books (in French “Une enfance brisée”) that really touched me a lot. I hope to read other books. I think in life everybody has troubles. I’m handicapped. I like cats and I think I can help when I have a house after my studies. Happy New Year.
