Helpless by Rosie Lewis
Helpless, Rosie Lewis. London: HarperCollins Publishers Ltd., 2013. e-book, 26 pps.
Rosie Lewis, a specialized foster carer, relates a story about a newborn that she cared for during the first six weeks.
sapphoq reviews says: This short but true tale of a fostered newborn will appeal to those who like syrupy stuff. It was not my cup of tea.
The larger story is about babies who are born with drugs in their system and their birth mothers who were unable to or unwilling to stay clean [including the drug alcohol] during their pregnancies.
