How amazing is this?
From ABC News:
In 1994, Daddy Dave and Daddy Bob prepared 5-year-old Elizabeth Wall for the first day of kindergarten in New Jersey, meeting with the principal in advance to ease her transition as the daughter of two gay men.
“They had never had gay parents before,” Wall told ABCNews.com. “It’s funny, after the principal met with them, he went to the faculty and said, ‘Who wants to take her?’”
Fortunately one teacher, who later became a close friend, volunteered and took the little girl under her wing in the Lawrenceville classroom, but for years Wall was careful about only telling close friends that she had two fathers.
“Obviously I was different and didn’t have a mom,” she said. “We are living in a world that treats our families differently. It can be isolating and challenging.”
