Abby - our force, our scoring threat - was out of the [2008] Olympics. We were going to have to win without her. Abby and I still didn’t have much of a relationship, but we had reached a kind of détente: we agreed to disagree about what happened in China. We were both key to the team’s success: the goal scorer and the goal stopper. I couldn’t imagine our team without her. (in Solo: A Memoir of Hope)

To my future son, when you come home smiling after a long day, I will ask you whether it’s a boyfriend or a girlfriend who has made you smile.
To my future daughter, when I see you secretly smiling down at your phone, I will ask you whether it’s a boyfriend or a girlfriend who has made you smile.
To my future children, I will not stick within the confines of asking my son if he has a girlfriend or if my daughter has a boyfriend. From a young age you will be taught that whether you bring a boy or a girl home, as long as they make you smile then that will make me smile.
My promise to my future children. (via gayisthenewokay)
