Adonis (2005) is a handsome, athletic and inquisitive boy with a wide range of interests – from sports and technology to a love for animals.
Adonis has a creative side and enjoys being outside, so we ventured over to Kidspace Children’s Museum in Pasadena to check out their new “Arroyo Adventure” area where we settled into a space to make pottery in the great outdoors.
Demonstrating his dexterity, Adonis was a natural at molding and shaping clay on a potter’s wheel. But before all that began, chunks of hard clay had to be loosened which required a bit of exertion. And before the chunks of clay could be transformed into a useful and/or artsy item, one has to imagine the end product. Then as the wheel begins to spin, one has to use their hands to hold the shape or to pull and add pressure or to slow the wheel down or speed it up to create the effects one wishes. At the pottery wheel or at the wheel of life, one often needs guidance and direction as to where or when to hold on, when and where pressure can be applied, and the right speed to get the end result one is seeking.
Adonis hopes to apply some of his creative side to being a game designer someday, while in the nearer future he is looking forward to playing football and enjoying other outdoor activities as well as maybe getting a “starter” pet such as a tadpole or a mouse. Adonis has experienced a lot of losses in his young life and may initially appear shy and withdrawn. We found that as he began to relax and as his pottery started to take shape, he soon started to show a proud smile on his face.
With the right focus, Adonis is likely to grow into a position from where he can positively shape other people’s lives. First, though, he needs a forever family to help him find the form and definition for his own life. Tune into Wednesday’s Child to see Adonis at the wheel.
