Damaged: The Heartbreaking True Story of a Forgotten Child


Damaged: The Heartbreaking True Story of a Forgotten Child

Cathy Glass

Oh my. A book that you don’t want to read but you must. This is the true story of carer (foster parent) Cathy Glass and a foster child. This book is a worst-case scenario for any foster family. Not only is it a heartbreaking story, but an anger causing, sick to the stomach story. Why is it a must read? If one is ever placed with a child that has experienced sexual abuse one needs to be mindful on how you approach and collect information from that child so any evidence will be usable in court.

The kids ask, “Why do you read these terrible stories, Mom?” I read them so I can learn from the stories of other people. If a child comes into my care with anything similar I would rather have in my background a knowledge of how to approach the child. Not only to be able to best help her but to also best preserve the validity of her story in the eyes of the court.

I have put many of her other books on my “To Read” list and look forward to also learning from them.
