This photograph is dated December 23, 1961. I discovered it seven years ago in an album in a box in an attic, where it had been wedged behind another photograph. I had never seen it before.

The boy is me. I’m six years old and I still have that slightly bewildered, terrified look I had for about three years after my adoption a few months earlier.
