A short hand written note on the notice board in the Quay Coop Restaurant in Cork reads:

Woman 39 and six week old baby boy who is in foster care at the moment needs a family with great experience with babies to foster the two of us as we need to be together.
Or do you know anybody that can help, please call me on …

Sorry, I didn’t see the header above the comment. Good guess though. Sounds tough but it would be an interesting adventure….39 sounds old for a child to be taken into foster care. The social network normally catches you before that age…or you never make it to that age…..we all hang by a thread.

Beautiful photo, sad story. The woman wants someone to look after her AND the baby. Where is the father? An example of the dark side of so-called ‘sexual liberation’?
