Scene 7: So Far, So Good (Mary Evered) for part 1.
When my daughter started at the school, one of the very first things I did was I made an appointment to see her religion teacher, a wonderful person. Um, so I sat down with her probably in the third week of September and, um, described our family to her.
And, uh, because I know I've taught grade seven religion before, and I know that there's a component of it about family life and human sexuality and all of that kind of thing. And I wanted the teacher to be aware of, um, well, the situation, you know, in my daughter's life, so that any teaching around family would be inclusive of our family as well.
So that my daughter would not feel like, you know, that there was something bizarre about her family.
