Interesting Perspective

A friend sent me a link to this blog post. I thought it was an interesting perspective.

As I have thought about the possible implications of adopting a non-Caucasian child, one concern is that they will always feel different. I think that is valid to think about, and this guy has some interesting insight on that. I remember feeling different because I had long hair. In college, people who couldn't remember my name called me "The Long-Haired Girl." Did that mean that I didn't like my long hair? No. Did I eventually cut it? Yes. I just think there are so many differences that can set us apart from our peers and we can choose to make them positive or negative.
