Kids can face some tough obstacles growing up and they’re going to be very curious about things, as their young minds start forming who they are…. and who they will be. And parents might wanna just let them BE who they wanna be, and here’s a story where a father deals with his SON after he chooses a toy normally picked out… by girls.
When Mikki Willis, of Ojai, California, took his 4-year-old son, Azai, to the toy store, he had no idea what would capture his child’s imagination. A toy gun? A monster truck? Maybe even a baseball glove…???
No. Young Azai was fascinated with all the dolls in one of the aisles. He was particularly entranced by a little Mermaid doll. His dad’s reaction to it was captured in a video that he posted to Facebook. Mikki held up the doll and said in the video: “How do you think a dad feels when his son wants to get this? I let my boys choose their life. Choose your expression. Choose what you’re into. Choose your sexuality. Choose whatever. You have my promise right now, both of you, as we sit in this car, in the hot car, in this parking lot, you have my promise forever to love you and accept you no matter what life you choose.”
Well it wasn’t very long after Mikki posted it that the video went viral…. and THEN SOME. In just 4 days, it received more than 14 million views.
Says Mikki regarding the overwhelming response: “I see so much negativity being shared through social media that this is my way of bringing a little balance, at least to my friends. To know we’ve touched people beyond our immediate community is both humbling and awesome.”
