Summary

The fifteenth fostering memoir by Cathy Glass.
Danny was petrified and clung to me in desperation as I carried him to my car. Trapped in his own dark world, he couldn't understand why his parents no longer loved or wanted him and were sending him away.
While Danny's parents have everything they could wish for in material terms, they are unable to care for their only child. This is where Cathy comes in. On a cold, dark evening, Danny finds a place in her home where he can be himself, away from his parents' impatience and frustration. Often in his own little world, six-year-old Danny finds it difficult to communicate, finding solace in his best friend and confidant George - his rabbit.
Cathy quickly becomes aware of his obsessively meticulous behaviour in addition to his love of patterns - he sees them everywhere and creates them at any opportunity - in his play and also with his food. She realises that patience is the key to looking after Danny as well as her well-tried strategies for managing children's behaviour.
With his father refusing to cooperate, it becomes increasingly likely that Danny will be living with Cathy permanently until she gets an opportunity to speak her piece.

Another excellent production

Classic Cathy Glass writing, it draws you in and you feel the whole range of emotions.

Classic performance from Danica Fairman, she really draws you into the story. I can't imagine anyone else narrating for Cathy, the partnership is perfect.

The most hands on: how to become a better parent, book by Kathy class I have ever read

I love reading about what each child brings to the lives of Kathy and her family. And what she does for them.

One of the reasons why I found this book particularly enjoyable, are the descriptions in detail that she makes of Danny interacting with his pet. Shows how much pets can help people deal with their own emotions.

Another wonderful story

Thank you Cathy for sharing Danny's story. I'm so glad that you helped his father understand Danny so that they could be a family again :)
