In February, I was waiting for my mum at the Train Station and I noticed a guy walking past staring at Violet. He then approached me and asked "what was wrong with her face". I just can't be bothered explaining in detail about Violet anymore as she is too complex, so I simply said "she was born like that".
He then said "I deserved to have a child like Violet and that I was being punished for my past sins and also my continued non belief in God". I could not believe my own ears....I then said to him that "he can not assume I don't believe in God, he has made a statement and he does not even know me" I also told him "I would not want to know a God that wished illness upon any human, adult or child".
By the time my mum arrived I was in tears and shaking.
This certainly is not the first time I have been asked what is wrong with Violet, but defiantely the most hurtful so far.
Besides the numerous stares and I mean long obvious stares not a quick glimpse......frequently I get asked what is wrong with her and whether she has been burnt is the most asked question I have had to date.
Why is it so many people stare and speak before thinking when someone is different ?
