As I look at this picture of our boy, I’m overwhelmed, more than usual, with the desire to protect him. Such an innocent sweet face.
We know him as this loud, boisterous, happy boy that on one hand doesn’t need protecting as such because no-one should want to harm him but I know the world and I know that as he grows older people will say mean things, life will throw things at him and we want to get him ready for that by teaching him that the world, at its core is a kind place and people by nature are kind.
We want him to approach the world with positive intentions.
We want him to take ignorance as an opportunity for education, racism should not exist and society should be inclusive.
For now though we will wrap him in cotton wool and continue to love the shit out of him. - 1 day ago
