Photographer and mom Kim Kelley-Wagner wanted to show the world that words can be powerful, especially when told to children. So she documented things people have told her adopted daughters via a series of photos on Facebook. She wrote on her page: "I have tried to explain to my daughters that people do not say these things to be mean, they say them out of ignorance, which is why I am sharing some of them. Words are powerful, they can become tools or weapons, choose to use them wisely."
