" I never dreamed as a kid of getting married or of being a parent. I never dreamed that dream because I couldn’t imagine it. I could imagine the BFG, talking animals, and aliens, but it never crossed my mind that some day I would put on a white dress and say “I do,” because I didn’t know it was possible. I never dreamed that I would grow a tiny person in my belly because I thought that was a dream that people like me couldn’t have. I’ve spent my whole life looking in other people’s windows, trying to squint hard to smudge the edges of their lives enough to be able to imagine that it’s not so different from my own. Now, they can stand at the window and squint at us for a while. "
