To give our friend credit, she immediately sent me a private message explaining that this girl was a wackadoo and that I shouldn’t pay attention to her. I find it interesting that people would remain friends with the “crazies” on facebook if they are in fact crazy. All it creates is unnecessary drama. I decided the best thing to do was just delete the comment thread and change my privacy settings. I was a bit heartbroken because this is what Ben is going to deal with his entire life and it’s not fair. I mean, how many people typically comment that my skin is too white? I don’t think I’ve ever had anything said to me about the color of my skin BECAUSE I’m white. But, my poor innocent little lovie was caught up in the issues between our friend and this random girl. Not cool and quite the eye opener to this mama. I know that Ben is accepted in our family and circle of friends and we get nothing but love from them but it’s interesting to see how flippantly an outsider can comment about a baby’s appearance and think nothing of it. Knife to the heart my friends.
