Eleven Year Old Needs Women’s Size 15 Shoes

This is my daughter’s story; she is only 11 years old!

My daughter is a size 13 in men’s* and she has now come to grips with her shoe size.  She is doing well with her size right now.  But it does bother her when kids in her class say, “Wow what size do you wear!”  I comfort her by telling her that God made in his image and there’s not a thing that he would like to change about her.  She smiles and is comforted until the problem arises again.

What am I supposed to say?  It hurts me more than it hurts her.



*note:  Size 13 men’s is roughly equivalent to size 14.5 – 15 women’s.
