He tamaiti whāngai a David ki te whānau Milne, mai anō i te wā i whakarerea ia e tōna māmā, i tōna kōhungahungatanga. Kāore rātou i te mōhio kua mate aia i te FASD. Ināianei, mai i ngā tau 15, he nui ngā taumahatanga kei runga i te whānau nā taua mate.

Ko te ao a David Milne, 15 ōna tau, he ao herehere, engari ehara nōna te hara.

Hei tā Kim Milne (Māmā), “But he has no chance of a reprieve or of parole, this his is life and by association it's become our life. David hates what he's got, he didn't ask for it, he didn't have a choice, but we're all in this prison with him.”

Ko tā David Milne - Ngāti Kahungunu, “It's pretty much just torture it's just complete havoc every single moment of life, it just really really sux. There's no words I can use to describe it, it's just too painful.”

Kei te pākia ia e te mate FASD, he mate e raweke ana i ōna whanonga, he mea uaua hoki mōna te ako i te kura.

Hei tā Kim Milne, “We have to lock doors, we've got alarms on doors to keep him as safe as possible, because when his brain glitches he does dangerous, risky and unpredictable things and we do our best to keep him safe.”

Engari hei ārai atu i te kino o taua mate, me kore ngā māmā e hapu ana e inu waipiro.

Ko tā Dr Russell Wills, “We don't know how much you can get away with there is no such things as a safe amount I've seen children with clear fetal alcohol affects whose mothers only drank once or twice they were just unlucky.”

E matapaetia ana o ngā tamariki kōtahi rau, kōtahi o rātou ka pākia e taua mate.
