I missed the deadline for Inge's links post, but wanted to post this story as a tangent to Angie's blog today. It's not about age - but rather about scars.

I have so much respect for this young woman! (Princess Eugenie)


This hits close to home for me. DS#2 was born with an underdeveloped and blind eye and a strawberry birthmark on the right side of his face. To me, he was a most beautiful round and sturdy golden morsel. Unfortunately the world did not see him the same way, and we were the recipients of many hurtful comments. At 8 months, he was fit with his first prosthetic eye by a very kind and gifted occularist who DS still sees 25 years later. The strawberry mark faded with time.

Like Princess Eugenie says: "I think you can change the way beauty is."
