So, anyway, back in 2008, when we got the call asking about the boys, I didn’t worry about any of that, anymore. I just got right to the falling in love with them part. And, I regret nothing.
And, I've learned that as far as society has come, we've only come so far.
Anyway, as I was typing, I got an email back from Antwan’s teacher. And, in this case, it turns out that the boys were, apparently, just asking Antwan why his skin is different. Hopefully, that's all it was and, if so, that's totally understandable. It hurts my heart that Antwan internalized it like that, though. So, maybe it’s our job to do a little more to instill pride in his skin so that he can confidently answer those questions. We try, but maybe we’ll need to try harder.
|The force was with them.|
I think that’s going to make them pretty well-rounded, enlightened adults and the world can always use more of those.
Personally, I really love who we are.
