A mother’s journey

A mother’s journey

When a child comes out as LGBT, a mother’s journey can take many different paths. The one I’m most struck by is grief. I know a lot of moms of LGBTQ kids. I’d say the majority of them went through some kind of grieving process when their child come out. Even those of...

The truth about adoption

The truth about adoption

I just read a story about a 12 year old boy who was adopted by a gay couple. He referred to his dads as “perfect parents.” He could have wasted away in foster care until he was 18. Thankfully, the agencies that approve and recommend adoptions thought it better for him...

Worry about a child’s safety

Worry about a child’s safety

I remember when my kids were young, I worried about everything. I worried when he climbed on the playground equipment. What if he fell and hurt himself? I worried about someone kidnapping them or killing them. I don’t think that’s too unusual. It’s normal for a mom to...

A Sexual Inclination That Needed To Be Cured

My Love Letter to You

My Love Letter to You

On this Valentine’s Day, I couldn’t think of anyone better to write a love letter to than you, the moms and dads of LGBTQ kids. Every day, I’m inspired by your stories, your commitment, your love. You stand up for your kids. Of course you do – you’ve loved them since...

It’s Time To Outlaw Conversion Therapy

It’s Time To Outlaw Conversion Therapy

States are starting to ban conversion therapy, the harmful practice of attempting to convert someone who is gay to straight. It doesn’t work. And it is dangerous. I’m reminded of the day when it was “wrong” to be left handed. Left handed children were forced to learn...

Adoption

Adoption

There’s been a lot of uproar about “gay adoption” lately. Gay couples, they say, are not fit to be parents. Children should be raised by a mother and father. It is what’s best for a child. Studies show that children raised by same-sex parents do just as well as kids...

Embracing Change

Embracing Change

Embracing change has never been one of my strong points. Can’t everything just stay the same? Well, not really. Change is a part of life. I wouldn’t go back to where I was in my 20 years ago, 30 years ago or more. I wouldn’t want to be 25 again. Why? Because the...
