Katie has received an outpouring of support on the internet, including LFL, Ashley Eckstein and others. The followup story can be read [link=http://www.chicagonow.com/blogs/portrait_of_an_adoption/2010/11/katie---an-ordinary-story-with-an-extraordinary-response.html]here[/link]. A Facebook event called "Wear Star Wars - Share Star Wars" was originally created to show support for Katie and to let her know that Star Wars is for girls, too. Her mom has asked that it be rebranded and that everyone who wears Star Wars apparel on December 10 also donate a Star Wars/sci-fi toy to a local hospital or shelter. She also asks that you specify that your gift should be given to a boy OR a girl, not just a boy. Lin and I will donating gifts in SMT's name. If anyone would like to participate, let me know and I'll coordinate the pickup and delivery.
