I was kind of taken aback at this. I mean, she's a therapist, for goodness' sake, who has made it her career to work with children with disabilities. And I just got this sense that even she places value on how a child looks.
I'm not mad about it, really. Not even offended, exactly. Just . . . surprised. But I guess what has struck me the most about that little exchange is the realization that I don't care anymore how Finn looks. I go back to my early, early posts on this blog, and whether or not Finn looked like he had Ds apparently was a big deal to me at one time. It makes me squirm. I don't care anymore. And yes, I do see the Ds in his face, more and more the older he gets. And he's beautiful to me.
I dunno . . . I guess I just feel like I've experienced some personal growth or something.
And Gap - they totally should have kids with Ds in their ads!
