When 10-year-old Sophia Bailey Klugh wrote President Obama a letter thanking him for his support of her two dads and their love for each other, she probably didn't expect to receive a response, much less a personal one.
But despite the proximity to Election Day, the president made the time to pen a thorough reply to Sophia's question about handling kids at school who tease her about her parents.
"You and I are blessed to live in a country where we are born equal no matter what we look like on the outside, where we grow up, or who our parents are," Obama wrote. "A good rule is to treat others the way you hope they will treat you. Remind your friends at school about this rule if they say something that hurts your feelings."
Obama too recognized the remarkable home such a letter had to originate from.
"You are very fortunate to have two parents who care deeply for you," he told Sophia. "They are lucky to have such an exceptional daughter in you."
