Maureen, Jazmine, and Jair

Maureen, Jazmine, and Jair

I want to be included because we are typical even though we might not be considered the normal nuclear family. All of that is just labels. We love and care for one another and take parenting our baby girl as a gift and responsibility above all others.  We struggle with her deep questions around identity already at 7. They started at 3. And that is tragic.  A 3 year old shouldn't question racial identity. But that is America. Jazmine is a beautiful reflection of what our country could be. Beautiful. Inquisitive. Free spirited. Compassionate. Dreamer. Hopeful.
