About the Author

Casey Watson is a specialist foster carer. She has been working in this field for six years after giving up her position as a behaviour manager for a local school. During this time she has welcomed 14 difficult to place children into her home.

As a specialist foster carer she works with profoundly damaged children, seeing each child through a specific behavioural modification programme, at the end of which they will hopefully be in the position to be returned either back to their family or into mainstream foster care.

Casey combines fostering with writing, usually late at night when the rest of the family is sleeping.

Casey is married with two grown-up children and three grandchildren.

The name Casey Watson is a pseudonym.

Don't miss this tragic story of two abused and neglected children born and raised in an uneducated, inbred, dysfunctional family that encourages sexually deviant behavior as acceptable recreation. The story unfolds when a social worker approaches an experienced foster family and requests that they become caregivers for these two children, Olivia and Ashton, who require emergency care. When the children are delivered, the foster family is appalled at the physical condition of these two malnourished children who arrive at their home with dirty ragged clothing and lice-ridden hair. Although their physical appearance is abhorrent, these children, ages +/-6 and +/-9, are not toilet trained and often exhibit sexually explicit behavior which presents a continuous challenge for the foster family. When the foster parents, Mike and Casey, request psychological counseling for Olivia and Ashton, they discover the inadequacies of the child protective system which lacks the necessary provisions for children rescued from dire circumstances. This book raises the consciousness of the reader and exposes the inefficiencies of our social systems that are poorly managed and do not provide adequate care for all children born and raised in impoverished conditions.

Liked the conent to a certain point. Felt it could have used more detail. It's sometimeshard for me to read these stories since I am a retired social worker. Sometimes hard to believe social workers didn't do more, but in reality I know some parts of a case fall through the cracks and are not addressed.

I got my Amazon Kindle for Christmas this past year and stumbled upon this series soon after. I'm absolutely hooked and have read every last one since that time. Casey writes in such an engaging way and I really feel that I have come to know her family and these amazing foster children. Casey and Mike are absolute saints in my opinion and deserve such praise and recognition for the work they do. God bless your family Casey and keep writing!!!

My adult daughter, who is a teacher, and I have always enjoyed Torey Hayden's books about troubled children. Casey Watson was a welcome find with her style of writing and the telling of her experiences in foster care.

I sure have to give to Casey & Mike for taking children into their home. What patience they had. HAPPY ending brought me to tears. Glad I found this amazing author! I'm putting my order in for "Too Hurt To Stay". I know I will end up reading them all at some point.

This book was written in a way that is easy to read even though the subject is difficult to understand, but portrays how hard a job being a foster carer really is. They must have such rewards when they see the child move on and become more used to a normal life from people who will care and love them as they have never before experienced. Total respect for these people who do this job.

I could feel the tragedy of these two little children's horrific family background.

I have read almost all of Casey Watson's books and they have all kept me hooked and wanting more.

Not only is she a wonderful carer but a wonderful writer as well.

Keep them coming Casey.

I enjoyed this book by Casey Watson, as I have a few of her others. Olivia and Ashton were dear children despite their abuse,neglect, sexualized play, not to mention lice, dirt and toilet accidents. Casey was able to help these siblings when her family fostered them. Secrets about their family's past are revealed once trust is gained.Abuse, incest, dysfunction and neglect, despite social service investigation, come to light. The future of these children was very precarious, but thanks to Casey, they have a chance to succeed in life and normalize their thinking and behavior.The two children were sent to live with separate carers but maintain their close bond. I hope they do well despite a terrible start in life.
