Luke was so terrified he was unable to speak

Luke' photo

Three year old Luke was surrounded by drug-taking and violence. He was permanently scared, so terrified he was unable to speak. He never knew what his dad would do next.

Children 1st helped Luke and his mum escape their past. Freed from fear Luke feels safe and loved and is learning to play with other children. Luke no longer feels the need to harm himself and he’s found his voice. His first word was: "Mumma."
