As if the last 4 years haven't been hard enough, one of children told me and DH they are gay, and have known for awhile. Shocked, angry, scared, just a few of our emotions. Mourning their future, what should have been, and won't be, society judgments, violence against gays, we are scared and heartsick. Uncomfortable subject for those who think it is impossible for this to happen to them: not impossible, I am living it. We live in smalltown USA, Christitan based, living amongst people who won't understand, hell, I didn't even understand it. Anyone here, have a gay child, and experienced this?? Help me understand it all!!
