Imagine getting a birth announcement without the sex of the baby would you be surprised and call to find out the sex of the child?
Kathy Witterick and David Stocker of Toronto Canada have decided to keep the sex of their newborn baby Storm to themselves. No one knows if their new child Storm is a boy or a girl, not even the grandparents.
They feel that to know someone you should spend time with them. That means not labeling them with a sex. They also say that kids receive messages from society that encourages them to treat each other differently once labeled by sex.

This isn’t the only odd choice the parents have made. They also allow their five and two year old to wear what they wish. Although they are boys they enjoy having their hair long in pink ribbons and dressing as girls.
