Even better, my brother texted me later that same night about what happened with his son and my cousin. It was an awesome request. (My brother and I became brother and sister my senior year in high school, when my dad married his mom. So, he didn't have the privilege of growing up around these angels on earth.) He asked if I would help him teach his son about accepting and loving people, all people. My brother saw a concept that he wanted to learn more about, not only to teach his child, but for himself. I think this is a great thing to explore and learn about because it has no negative sides other than the initial discomfort of getting out of your comfort zone.
When we think about it, how can we possibly know about something if we have never been exposed to it or taught. And ... it's never too late to learn. Especially such a wonderful, fulfilling lesson as love and acceptance of others.
Our plan for my little nephew? Less talking about it and spending more time with my cousin. The best way to learn and understand is by experience. I look forward to doing an update on my nephew as he learns and grows. I think it's going to be an awesome metamorphosis to witness!
