Abstract: This study aimed to investigate the family representation of a child who experienced the adoption process from the child’s point of view and evaluate their emotional maturation. A nine-year-old boy and his mother took part in the study. For the data collection, it was performed a semi-structured interview with the mother, followed by a Play Session. The Drawing-of-Family-and-Story Procedure and a session for intervention on the drawings were made with the child. The data obtained was interpreted according to the method of free inspection of the material from the comprehensive process, based on the Winnicottian reference. The results showed the importance of the child knowing and having an openness to talk about their history with those responsible. In addition, when there is a welcoming environment and the offer of a therapeutic space for the child, available to the family, this allows the emotional maturation of the child. Furthermore, there is a need to care for the child who suffered deprivation, and the negative consequences of erasing the history experienced before the adoption are highlighted. The study points to the children finding in the family by adopting a safe and welcoming environment, surviving their attacks, and providing a space in which their life history is respected.
