Skye hates to leave baby brother Dexter, but come Thursday, they will all be back together
Skye hates to leave her baby brother Dexter with the foster-whatevers, but she knows that come Thursday, they'll all be back together.
And if that visit goes well, maybe they can both stay for more than a night.
Skye and Dexter return in this heart-breaking, heart-warming story by Amanda Whittington, in one of the highlights of this year's BBC Children in Need Appeal on Radio 4.
Skye is twelve, Dexter is three. They live in Gainsborough, Lincolnshire, but they were taken away from their Mum last year after things got bad.
There's nothing Skye wants more than to have the family back together. Her Mum has stopped drinking and Skye has had supervised visits. Now she's here for the whole of half-term and Dexter is coming too for the first time. Not the last time.
Skye and Dexter's story was developed with the help of Hull Children's University and Voice of Young People in Care, both organisations that receive funding for specific projects from BBC Children in Need.
