The foster care system is in crisis. Living and working in three countriesaEngland, Canada, and the USAahas given Mary a unique perspective on just how dysfunctional the systems are. She has fostered over forty children and this book is a testament to their lives and Maryas attempts to maneuver the system. From humble beginnings in England nurtured by a loving family, Mary was destined to be a child advocate and throw some light on the failings of the child care system. The English social services struggled to cope with asylum seekers from Afghanistan and Kosovo, pretending to be children (unaccompanied minors) to get benefits and be less scrutinized by the government. In Canada the children were moved around because Mary dared to speak up. In the USA children are falling through the cracks because money is spent elsewhere. Children are not anyoneas priority. The USA has the most dismal record of all. Through the story of Maryas trials and tribulations an understanding is gained about a terribly dysfunctional system.
