In Our Hearts is a book written for and by mothers who live apart from their children.

It is also a fantastic tool for anyone working with families whose children are not living with them or at risk of separation.

In Our Hearts is not a text book but 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, have the versatility of being an aid and guide to learning for parents, families and professionals working in the protection of children.

The book has been created by mothers who are involved with our Mothers Apart project in Kirklees.
