Louise Mason lived through every mother's nightmare. Both her children were taken into care following the false accusation that Louise had harmed the younger child, who was just four weeks old at the time. Social services kept the children - and tried to put them up for adoption - even after Louise had been cleared in a criminal court of all charges against her. When she gave birth to a third child three years later, social services were at the hospital within hours to take her baby away. Failed by the system and unjustly labelled an unfit mother, Louise never stopped fighting to get her children back.With the unwavering support of her solicitor, Carmel McGilloway, Louise fought a four-year battle through the courts. In June 2006 a judge ruled that her children should be returned to her. Told here for the first time, this is Louise's own story: her feelings when her children were taken away, her fears as she took on the system and her hopes for the future as she tries to rebuild her family life. "A Mother's Nightmare" is the story of a woman who found the strength to keep fighting when it seemed as though the whole world was against her.
