A noble and brave story
A sequence of family tragedies led to Keith Lawton spending his childhood with a series of foster parents and in a notorious care home. Unable to deal with the abuses and cruelty he suffered, Keith locked his memories away, but he is haunted by nightmares. Years later, having built a successful career in the construction industry, Keith decides to find out about his past. As he discovers his case files, and the often heart-breaking notes written about him all those years ago, his memories emerge, and he begins to piece together a past where a little boy, vulnerable and alone, was failed by the system, over and over again. This is Keith’s story, honest, raw and heartfelt. It is a story of discovery, of hurt, and ultimately of healing, as Keith recounts his own past in the hope that it may help others to come to terms with their own.
