Eight years ago I had a beautiful baby girl. She was born with a disability, and I remember one of the first things the nurse said to me was that she thought I should keep her. The thought had never crossed my mind to give her up. Since then she has gone from having a single disability to having multiple disabilities. She is a challenge for me to care for, but I love her with all my heart and wouldn't have it any other way. It has crossed my mind that if I would have given her up for adoption, someone would have received a lot of money to care for her. I know they would have gotten more money than I do. Since I work to support my family, my daughter is only disabled depending on how much money I make, according to government agencies. Apparently she is not disabled at this time. I receive no help from any agency at all. This is sad, since there are many things she needs that I cannot supply her with. Yet complete strangers can receive compensation to care for and foster a disabled child.

Don't judge a book by its cover. Don't make assumptions. Don't judge a person by looks alone. We are taught many times this same lesson: you can't tell what's inside by looking at the outside. And yet there's one situation in life where we are forced to make decisions based on the outside alone. In this situation, we must assess the contents based on the "cover." That situation is when buying fruit.
