Grateful for Acceptance at School

"While reading bedtime books a few nights ago, I mentioned to Peter that some of his teachers might be hanging up “Craniofacial Acceptance Month” posters in their classrooms.  Jacob then said, “What about my teacher?”  Well, I replied, “I don’t know who your teacher is yet, but you can take one to school with you next week.”  Peter promptly chimes in, “Now Jacob, don’t start bragging about your brother who has all these cool differences.”  Oh boy, I thought, we’ve created an egotistical monster!

Seriously though, I’m glad that Peter is so comfortable at school.  I know that he is accepted without question.  His classmates already understand that there is nothing to fear about being friends with someone who looks different.  This Sunday I’m grateful that our school is full of students, teachers, and staff who already embrace a community of acceptance.  While Peter may or may not be “Mr. Popularity”, he has without a doubt shown his fellow students that, “Beyond the Face is a Heart”.
