Subject: What would you do if this was your baby daughter?

My cousin's baby daughter Harper was born last September. She was born with a large dark birthmark covering almost half of her face.

She's so beautiful despite that, but my heart broke for her at the bullying and even just the gasps and stares she's going to get her whole life because of the scar.

She could have surgery to reduce much of the birthmark, but it'll never go away completely.

Her story has caught enough attention that she's actually featured in a national newspaper online and in press, this week.

Her parents have left the decision up to her for when she gets older.

I'm not sure I'd handle it the same way but she's not my daughter. I think I'd go with the surgery.

I don't really know my cousin well. I haven't seen Jamie since we were both boys.

We used to build tree houses together, and stuff, but I don't see that side of the family much anymore, so I have no input, and I wouldn't feel like it was my place to say anything, anyway, even if we were in touch.
