You Can Tell He’s Not Yours


I think we have the same smile. Don't you?

You can tell by looking at him that he’s not yours.

Yes, those are the words Lil Bit’s Court-Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) said to me during one meeting.

I was shocked she said that to me.  And that statement did rub me the wrong way.  Okay, I admit it – I was offended.

Would she have said that to me if Lil Bit were African-American?

Or what if he were blond-haired and blue-eyed like Blondie?

What would’ve been your reply?

Have you had to deal with small-minded people in regard to your children?
