Adoption solved two problems, but what about me?
Agi Gault has been a frontline social worker in child protection since 1998. She was drawn to a career in child protection because of her personal experience of going through the care system in the United Kingdom as an adopted and abused child.
This book is a narrative of Agi’s life interspersed with a collection of her poems which were Agi’s communication, and metaphors of her lived experience and her therapy. They say what has been unspeakable throughout her life.
“I grew up in the Third Space and watched professional after professional overlook who I was and what I was trying to communicate. I had become the problem they told me I was. Today I live with the consequences of being seen but never recognised.”
