Description

Officers from the RSPCA investigate reports of animal cruelty and neglect on a farm, only to discover a 5-year-old boy curled up asleep in a dog bed, amidst filth and squalor. He has severe physical and cognitive impairments, and no one outside the family seems to know of the existence of little Jacob.

When he arrives in the Allen household, a terrified Louise wonders how on earth she will cope looking after a child with his level of physical and emotional damage.

With the support of veteran social worker, Mary, the fight begins to get Jacob the support he needs - as medical investigations begin to reveal more shocking details about Jacob's story.

About the Author

From an early age, Louise Allen was adopted into a family who, from the beginning, said they didn't want her. Her first book Thrown Away Child reveals the abuse and neglect she and a fellow adopted child suffered at the hands of their adopted mother Barbara.

Ten years ago, Louise and her family became a fostering family. They have looked after over twenty children, some have stayed long term. This led to the bestselling series Thrown Away Children where Louise is inspired by the stories of children in the care system. Within days the book became a bestseller.

Louise now draws on her experience to write a new series of 'How to' books about adoption, fostering and parenting. How to Adopt a Child is the unvarnished truth about adoption. Louise is well known for "saying it as it is" so not only is it witty and engaging, it also empowers adopters to feel confident and in control and to know where to turn to for help.
