‘Oh, she’s so cute!’ HIS hair was so silky and beautiful that I let it be. ‘That’s so irresponsible,’ the parent responded.’: Boy grows hair to donate to kids in need, mom says his ‘heart, not hair’ is what matters most

“He loved his hair, so I let it grow. What mattered to me was his heart, not looks. ‘What are you doing in the boy’s bathroom?’ ‘What would you like, sweetheart?’ For every uncomfortable comment, Morgan stood up for himself. ‘I’m a boy growing my hair to donate to children with medical issues.’ He just wanted to help other families.”

‘Maybe she hasn’t discovered her left arm yet?’ My baby was only using her right hand. Something was ‘wrong’ with my perfect, healthy girl.’: Daughter’s Hemorrhagic Stroke misdiagnosed for months, mom ‘beyond proud’ of her despite disabilities

“At her 6-month checkup, the pediatrician casually asked, ‘Does she switch toys back and forth between both hands?’ When I answered no, she said, ‘Oh no. This really isn’t normal.’ In the center of her brain was a burst vessel. This was both shocking and devastating. We were done waiting for her to ‘discover’ her arm. It wasn’t supposed to be like this. This was not in my plans, at all.”
