Hi there,

I'm pretty new to this site. I've been lurking around reading posts and I've noticed that many people put their child pics on the site. I think that's cool because there's an aspect of reclaiming your childhood. But for me, maybe for good, I've been really really moved thinking about all these children who have been hurt. Who knows how you all look right now but back then you were innocent. I just thought I'd share that all these pictures have brought tears to my eyes.

Apollo,

Welcome to the site and I'm glad you've returned. There's a lot going on here and I hope it can help you. You're right about the childhood photos; it's a cool way of reminding ourselves who we were back then, and how so much of that little boy is still with us now.

Much love,
Larry

I love it too. Whoever thought of it had a great idea!

My picture was when I was 10, when the abuse had, or was about to, stop abruptly. It was sort of the in between time between the abuse and my own "losing it."

Sort of the last vestige of my childhood. Sigh. I like how I look so silly and happy, despite the huge secret inside that head.

I found the pics moving also. I don't use a pic of me because I have not found any for those years before the csa. I may one day after I see my sister who has loads of pics of us kids way back then. For now I got my angels \:\)

I was not a child at the time that I was raped . I was techanaly an adult . I was 18 and 4 months and in the army .
That is why my avatar is the way that is is . Because after being sodomised I was a difrent person.

Welcome to the MS site, apollo. The pics show a lot of really brave little boys who were dealing as best they could with a horrible set of circumstances. What a bunch of incredible little men.
