Here I used a compound words "Gain-Trust" first time to express the meaning of the character because, neither "Gain" nor "Trust" is not the real meaning of the character.
The explanation on Dictionary of Pictography is that the original meaning of the character is Capture. I disagree. Because to capture a child doesn't make sense, and the current meaning of the character is "Grain-Trust", which is opposite to Capture but close to child trusts parents's hands.
The bronze script of the character is
The big seal script of the character is
The small seal script of the character is
The clerical script of the character is
The top is hand, the bottom is child.
The song typeface of the character is
孚Same as the clerical script.

The character is not popular now, but it is important part in many compound characters.
