Number 1 UK bestseller!
Many of us are aware of the shocking conditions that exist in state run orphanages in some developing countries, but nothing could have prepared me for hearing about it first hand.
Elaine and Ian followed the correct procedure to adopt a child from abroad but when they arrived at the orphanage they found their baby had died. Devastated they planned to return home childless but were persuaded to see an abandoned two year girl. They immediately fell in love with her.
With no experience of looking after children and wanting to make up for Anna’s past suffering they gave in to her constant demands and ignored her bad, sometimes cruel, behaviour. Anna quickly became unmanageable and when her parents couldn’t cope any longer she had to go into foster care. I was her third foster carer in a week which showed the level of her challenging behaviour. Despite my best efforts and years of experience looking after children it seemed there was little I could do to help her.
