So Gary is down 30 pounds AND a son today. The state refused Gary's appeal and still feels that their stupid procedures are more important than the love of a family and letting a good man be a good man for his wife and children.
I'm thankful that life has never done that to me. My wife will tell you about the looks and the treatment and the abuse I've suffered because of my size but I'm pretty obvlivious to it - I guess I started ignoring it at a young age. I'm thankful that I have my daughter and my loving wife and that we will raise Ava to be smart enough to not judge people for the color of their skin or the religion they follow or the size of their body. Apparently not everyone's parents bothered to teach them that, at least not the parents of the fine people running the state of Missouri.
Shame on you, Missouri. Keep your chin up, Gary and THANK GOD that I can only imagine what you are going through right now - I would not want to know for sure.
