What makes a mother? This monster was no mother. A mother is supposed to be loving and nurturing; supportive and kind.
Eunice Spry had two natural children and five foster/ adopted children l, three of whom suffered shocking and evil injuries and beatings for over 10 years. Why these three? What did she see or hate in these three vulnerable innocent children? She made their every day horrible, yet that's all these children knew; they didn't know that normal families don't function like this.
I can't understand a woman like Eunice. I can't understand what in her mind makes her think this abuse is ok. She used anything and everything to abuse these kids over and over; things that horrify the rest of us. I don't understand how she could turn it on and off as she did when they were in Florida and the children had a temporary reprieve where she seemed almost loving. I also don't understand how she got away with it so long. What is wrong with the other adults in these children's lives that they would turn a blind eye to what was going on? They would have to have been complete morons not to know and anyone knowing and allowing it should have been charged and punished as well.
This story is fascinating, yet so tragic and heartbreaking. I couldn't read a lot at once, it is intense and raw. It is well written by one of the abused, Christopher, whose childhood was ruined by Eunice and will carry scars both physical and mental for the rest of his life.
I altered between anger and rage to disbelief that someone could be that cruel to anyone, much less a child put in her care.
In my opinion, this witch did not get anything close to a long enough sentence but I know there is a special place in hell waiting just for her. ( )

such a sad story - it makes it so much sadder when you know the story as I did from the recent news ( )

I would like to dedicate this book to my Mum and Dad. You did not give up hope of reaching us even when others did. We've had highs and lows but you've always been there for us. You have provided unconditional love and support. Thank you. Also to our family friends, Chris and Kayleigh and their new-born son, Blake.
