Small Gestures

by Ben White

I had lunch with her daughter today. She looks just like Sara did 22 years ago. We talked about her interests, extracurriculars, and just a touch of her hopes and dreams. Such a bright smile. I gave her a spot in my lab; I'll write her rec letter for med school in a few months. And I bought her some sesame chicken — it's the least a father can do.


Ben White is a medical student, although he is almost certain he received no help from any secret biological parents. He lives in San Antonio, Texas, and online here.
