Can I Let You Go? by Cathy Glass

Into the Wild

Read Can I Let You Go? Online Free - Can I Let You Go? is the true story of Faye, a wonderful young woman who may never be able to parent her unborn child.

Faye is 24, pregnant, and has learning difficulties as a result of her mother’s alcoholism. Faye is gentle, childlike and vulnerable, and normally lives with her grandparents, both of whom have mobility problems. Cathy and her children welcome Faye into their home and hearts. The care plan is for Faye to stay with Cathy until after the birth when she will return home and the baby will go for adoption. Given that Faye never goes out alone it is something of a mystery how she ever became pregnant and Faye says it’s a secret.

To begin with Faye won’t acknowledge she is pregnant or talk about the changes in her body as she worries it will upset her grandparents, but after her social worker assures her she can talk to Cathy she opens up. However, this leads to Faye realizing just how much she will lose and she changes her mind and says she wants to keep her baby.

Is it possible Faye could learn enough to parent her child? Cathy believes it is, and Faye’s social worker is obliged to give Faye the chance.

I just typed up an entire review of this book, but my cat jumped onto the keyboard and it disappeared forever into the ozone. Anyway, I've read a half-dozen of Cathy Glass's narratives about her role as a short-term foster carer for abused and neglected children in the U.K. This is perhaps the be...

I am a huge supporter of Cathy Glass and her books. I used to work within Childrens Social Services, as a support services officer, and although I wasn’t involved in front line social work I still became caught up in cases. I had to liaise with foster carers and occasionally I had to research cer...

As people know, i am a big fan of this author. I have read most of her books. This one was a good one, it was different because of the nature. She handled Fay very well and really believed in her. Looking forward to her next book.

Round up to 4.5 stars. One of my favorites, but really sad, especially at the end. I always read Ms. Glass's books super quickly, and this was no exception.
