Monica "Focus on the Beauty"
"“Do you have any friends left?” were the first words I heard in the recovery room when I woke up after delivering my first son by emergency C-section, at age 17. The nurse was referring to me having a mixed-race child. I verbally defended my child as much as I could given the state I was in, but this would soon be only one situation out of many where the color of my now-3 sons would determine how people spoke to and treated us.”
