Summary

Cruel to Be Kind is the true story of Max, age six. He is fostered by Cathy while his mother is in hospital with complications from type 2 diabetes.
Fostering Max gets off to a bad start when his mother, Caz, complains and threatens Cathy even before Max has moved in. Cathy and her family are shocked when they first meet Max. But his social worker isn't the only one in denial; his whole family are, too.

Cathy Glass is an inspiration. She is a miracle worked in the life of these kids and alot of time the parents of the kids she cares for. I never expected this story to end like it did but sad as it was the kids were and will be okay thanks to her and other kind ppl like her.
