Girl Plus So Much More!

My daughter was playing with stickers earlier this morning and came across a G+ sticker that I got from an event I covered months ago. She was goofing around a bit and thought it would be funny to put the sticker on her chest.

Girl plus more!

I, on the other hand, was inspired. I was inspired because this photo, at this moment, summed up everything I hope to achieve as I raise my daughter. This photo is something I want people to see in every little girl. I want everyone to see that every little girl has unlimited potential to be so much more. Potential that shouldn’t be limited by their gender roles or societal expectations.

I want my girl to have the best of all possible worlds, and this is something I pray every little girl will have.

boysandgirlsAnd have as many playmates as they want, both boys and girls.

In short, I want little girls to feel like they can be anything they want, without judgement, without limits, without fear. I want them to know that they’re not just little girls, there’s always room for so much more.
