In Our Hearts
This book has been created by mothers who are involved with WomenCentre's Mothers Living Apart from their Children project in Kirklees, and gives mothers the opportunity to be heard in their own words.
In Our Hearts is not a text book but contains a mix of stories and artwork. It chronicles the open and honest experiences of initial separation, court proceedings, relationships with services; of mothers who have been able to have children returned to their care or contact increased, mothers who have no current contact at all and those for whom contact will remain limited.
In Our Hearts will be a valuable aid and guide to learning for parents, families and professionals working in the protection of children.
