Mason was let down by the people he trusted so many times, he believed he wasn’t worthy of love or care.
Mason* dreaded the sound of the school bell at the end of the day.
That sound meant he had to leave school and go home. He was frightened of what was waiting for him at home…
Every day Mason watched his parents verbally and physically abuse one another. Too often, Mason was also a victim of the abuse.
Feeling scarred by his abuse, and rejected after 33 failed foster care placements, it’s not surprising that Mason couldn’t control his behaviour—he would lash out, act violently, and run away.
Children like Mason need specialised care to make them feel safe and help them heal from their hurt.
