The Silent Cry.
Cathy Glass

The Silent Cry.

When Laura, a new mother and a friend of Cathy’s tells her she is feeling a little unwell Cathy has no idea that she is really suffering from severe post natal depression. Laura refuses to see a doctor and her husband and mother-in-law conspire to keep her condition secret. Shut away from the outside world Laura’s mental health deteriorates until it’s almost too late.  By the time she is admitted to hospital as an emergency she believes she is so evil that she’s given birth to the devil.

This is the true story of Laura. It is also the true stories of little Darrel, Samson and Hayley who Cathy fostered when their parents needed help. Some stories can have a happy ending, others cannot, but as a foster carer Cathy knows she can only do her best and hope that in some small way she has helped the children and their families towards a better future.
