When foster carer Cathy Glass is asked to foster Darcy-May, a two-day-old baby, she is very concerned.
The baby is coming to her straight from the hospital and will have no contact with her teenage mother, Haylea. Even more worrying, she will be brought to Cathy with a police escort, as it’s vital her extended family doesn't know where she is.
Abandoned at birth, Cathy and her family quickly bond with little Darcy-May, although they have to accept that she will eventually leave them to be adopted. But fostering is rarely straightforward, and when Haylea asks to see her baby, a different story begins to emerge. It’s so alarming that even Cathy, a highly experienced foster carer, struggles.
