This picture makes me so happy– look at that cute little face with unbridled happiness in his eyes! This is the expression someone makes when they are loved and accepted for who they are!
Father, Mikki Willis, could have reacted in many ways when his son, Azai, opted for a Little Mermaid Doll, but this story has a happy ending. While our society teaches us that subscribing to stereotypical gender-norms will help you “succeed” in life, Willis shows us that true success comes from knowing you’re loved and accepted as you are from an early age. Having a rock-solid foundation helps raise kids into productive, successful humans.
“Now how do you think a dad feels when his son wants to get this?” asked Willis… take a look and see his beautiful reaction!
