By Glass, Cathy
17-year-old Jade is pregnant and homeless when she is brought to live with foster carer Cathy. She stays out late, drinks heavily and smokes, but deep down she is desperate to hold on to her baby. The UK has the highest teen pregnancy rate in the developed world. This is Jade's s...tory, but sadly it could be the story of many. As soon as Jade arrives Cathy is worried; she has never looked after a pregnant teenager before, but all the specialist 'mother and baby' carers are full, and - seventeen years old, seven months pregnant and homeless - Jade is in a desperate situation. Her behaviour immediately gives Cathy cause for concern, but she clearly doesn't want to listen - and it isn't long after the baby is born before Jade is in trouble with the police. Social services plan to take baby Courtney away from Jade and place her up for adoption. Cathy knows that Jade loves her daughter with all her heart, but will she be able to get through to Jade in time to make her realise what she might lose?Read more
