A Note to J from Dad

Dear J,

You are an amazing child. You will grow into a wonderful person and you will be a great role model for your younger brother and sister. Be true to yourself and don't let anyone force you into a box that doesn't fit for you.  Papa and I love you very much. When people give you a hard time for being different or standing out, we will always have your back. Whenever it gets too scary out there, you will always have a safe place at home where you are loved. You are so brave and I am very proud of you.



  1. What a wonderful acknowledgment. I loved reading this and wished every child could have this kind of loving reassurance from a father like you. Thank you for sharing this!
