We are the mirror for our children.
I love the previous post that our child is our mirror.
I think we are the mirror. We are the mirror for our children. When we hold infants, the look to our faces for confirmation of their existence. Doctors call this "mirroring". Our babies literally look at us to reflect back to them that they exist. That's why being born to an emotionally detached or wounded parent can be so devastating. More on this later.
