I’m 40 years old now, but it’s taken me about 35 years to embrace my eyes

I’m 40 years old now, but it’s taken me about 35 years to embrace my eyes…

Being adopted almost added onto the dealing of being weird – different when I was a little girl, people always pointed it out and asked me silly questions about did I see the same in each eye… My brothers called me a witch….

I could be talking to a stranger when suddenly they would interrupt me and say “hey! You’ve got 2 different coloured eyes”! – kinda felt like a freak show at times…

Do I feel different from others? Yes!! And it’s taken me this long to love it!! I feel it’s a blessing and I feel it’s a mark of something precious, mysterious!

I’ve just become a grandmother, and trust me, I watch my grand daughters eyes all the time to see if she has changes! I totally love it!

  1. I was lucky. They were always referred to as ‘a Mommy’s eye’ and a ‘Daddy’s eye’. And they are. Made me feel special.
