My daughter has a birthmark on the right side of her face. In the world that she is growing up in anything that makes you stand out, other people want you to be ashamed of it. A lot of people (adults) have asked me and my wife what If we plan to do something about it. Some ask in genuine love and concern. We appreciate that. Some ask as if their opinions actually matter (as if it needed correction). All of these people were told where they could go and the fastest way to get there. I want my daughter to know that the only opinion of her that matters is her own. I want her to own every inch of herself and not be captive mentally to anyones thoughts of her.
