Our children learn at a very young age that they are judged by how they look. I am constantly reminding Lizzie that what is on the outside is not as important as to what is on the inside.

Just a note, beauty is only skin deep..take only the skin away and there you go, everyone is on the same playing field. We love you all,nana
