The Hardest Part of this Journey…

The hardest part of this journey is seeing Willow’s worth but knowing some will always view her as unworthy.

Unworthy of respect.

Unworthy of a conversation.

Unworthy of equal opportunity.

Unworthy of a living wage.

Unworthy of inclusion.

Unworthy of love.

The hardest part of this journey is knowing that no matter how amazing Willow is, some will always see her as less than.

A punchline.

A product of sin.

A charity case.

A burden to society.

Unintelligent.

Needing to be healed.

Better off dead.

The hardest part of this journey is feeling all this love for my daughter, but knowing the world is full of so much hate.

So much pain.

So much ugliness.

So much confusion.

How do I change it?

This journey is so so hard sometimes.

So lonely.

So scary.

So overwhelming.

But I love her.

I. Love. Willow.

That’s the easiest part of this journey. Loving Willow is not hard at all…
