Luca looking for a brighter future

Luca attends St Michael’s School for Children with Autism and is now a star pupil. There was a time when Luca used to be completely isolated, more than a little detached. He had a limited grasp of the world around him, seemed to know almost nothing of his surroundings, he didn’t want to know anyone who could understand him. It was very hard for him, he was shy very, very, shy. Life was anything but easy in fact is was incredibly hard. He was in a totally different place from where he is today. In many ways he lived a life more darkness than light, with more mirk than clear blue sky. Nothing made him smile and seemingly no one could reach out to him, as it was difficult to get to know or help him, he lived to a degree in almost in total isolation. Fortunately, things have now changed. After years, of long hard days, little by little Luca has stepped towards, what we might call a normal life. It was not easy and at time he clearly wasn’t that happy, but with the help of a host of supportive people he has managed it. A times, It was a complicated process, and Luca likes to say “Once I was like that, but alas it’s far from over yet and it will probably never be over, but with each step, each day with each therapy session I  lift the heavy veil that has enveloped my life.”

Every battle requires sacrifice; for Lucca that has involved many years of hard work, sleepless nights, countless tears, shattered wishes and dreams and days and moments long gone, that can never be erased, but it was worth it. These days Lucca is doing well, helped by those who worked for him all the way!  He  can only say thanks and rejoice that he has come this far, that he can smile and sometimes I can even put a  smile on th4e face of those who helped him;  and these  days he  can reach out to offer a hug demonstrating his  trust and to love  is sincere and unconditional

Luca, having considered what you have done for him, sends you, the supporter of CID, who helped make all this possible, lots of love.
