What's in a Name?
I know you all have heard about the father who abandoned his 9 children under the Safe Haven Act in Omaha, NE, however that is not what I am writing about today. This morning I was watching the Today Show and as Ann Curry introduced the man's family she said his step-daughter twice. His daughter corrected him twice saying daughter. The second time she said she was his daughter she made it clearer, "He is my real Dad, all there is is blood". Ahhh...from the horse's mouth. Unfortunately, Ann Curry didn't hear her and I'm pretty certain this won't be the last time she introduces someone as a stepchild OR adopted child. The only thing we/I can continue to do is keep telling people about the importance of the words they use AND names/titles do make a difference. Good for that young lady. You go girl!
