I am the mother of a 24 year old daughter who came out about a year ago. I am sure that my husband and I went through the many emotions and feelings of shock, sadness, disbelief, denial, depression, fear, etc. that most parents go through.
I now am at a place where I am mad!
I am a very proud mother of 3 beautiful and wonderful children, one boy and two girls. My son Brandon is the oldest and has always been a complete joy to be around. He always excelled in school with a very strong work ethic and never gave me any trouble. He is a very loving, kind hearted person. As you can tell I am very proud of him. I always raised my children to be true to who they are and stand up for what they believe in.
I am the proud mother of two sons born barely three years apart. My sons were brought up in the Commonwealth of Virginia in the Nineteen Sixties and Seventies by the same loving parents, and under the same circumstances: same schools, same religious upbringing, same love of sports, same love of learning, same quick grasp of knowledge, same senses of humor, work ethic, etc. So, as their Mother, I, like most parents at that time, dreamed and assumed that both my boys would fall in love with nice girls, get married and each have his own family.
