Trapped?

 

Detail

Most of the time a child who is abused feels trapped. Trapped by the secrecy. Trapped by the shame. Trapped by the love (s)he feels for the abuser.

In this quilt I attempted to show the trapped child and a way out of the trap. Breaking the silence, speaking up, asking for help ­ this can be the way out of the trap, the way to find those loving arms to hold you.
