Do you care what other people think? About you? About your family?
I have come to the realization that I do. That's my confession...I can't help it. I care what other people think. You know how I figured that out?
I figured it out because I still get uneasy when walking into a public place with Katie. I am always watching for the staring, whispers, questions etc. And I hate it. I hate that I even care. What difference does it make to me that other people might not understand why we have Katie. Might whisper about why she's with us.
And if we don't stick out enough as it is (big black dog who goes everywhere we do), when Kylie comes along, I'm sure we'll get even more attention. She won't look like us. Some won't understand how she is with us since we are all white. Some will whisper and stare and wonder what's wrong with her lip.
So, I'm working on not caring about that. She will be part of us just like Katie is already part of us. And if they don't understand, it's their problem, NOT mine.
Just some random thoughts.
