Me at 3 or 4

Finally learning how to use my scanner!

Here's me as a little girl . . . My hair looks like it's double strand twisted but my mom actually used thread to kind of wrap my hair (a popular traditional hairstyle). I love this picture and when I look at it now (indeed all my many childhood and teenage pictures), I can't even understand how I believed the lie that I was ugly! Here's to embracing the truth and eschewing the lie! What a cutie!!

Cutie indeed!
Unfortunately, I grew up in the 80s. Only certain children were considered pretty. I cant count the numerous times that I was told you are pretty to be dark skin or how did you get all that hair. As, if your skin color had anything to do with your skin's condition. People's words stick with you throughout life.

That is THE cutest picture! It is so beautiful to see people that used to be called names or think they were less than (like Addae) look back on old pics and say, "hey, I was a cutie pie!" I love it!
