Were you born to “replace” a child who died? No matter how many times replacement children are told that they are special, on some level they can feel they never seemed to live up to the model their parents wanted. They always fall short—never being “enough.” Replacement child Barbara Jaffe shares her hard-won knowledge to help us identify our lost self-esteem, self-confidence, and self-worth, and fix the broken pieces within ourselves. We had been stunted; now, we need to be nurtured, not by others, but by ourselves. We can pursue a full and honorable life, one we can pass on to our children and then, to future generations.
