Box Two

Box Two
In 1964 I was adopted along with my biological brother. We were "chosen" from a group of orphans at the Children’s Aid Society while playing in the Orphanage’s romper room. It was here that perspective parents viewed the children from behind a large glass window. This model is of the home that I came to live in with my adopted family.

Archetype: Wounded Child
The Wounded Child holds the memories of abuse, neglect, and other traumas that were endured during childhood. These wounds often become the reason for adult suffering. The Wounded Child needs and deserves recognition as having had a substantial influence on who they are as adults. The painful experiences in our childhood have the potential to awaken a deep sense of compassion in us and can crack open a path to forgiveness (Myss, 2001).
