Does anyone have any advice on how to help my oldest daughter who is 10 adjust to her mom being a lesbian.? I was married to her father, because I was brought up with the idea that that is what you are supposed to do. I have always known that I love women and not men, but I wanted to fit in, and do what was expected of me. I finally could not pretend anymore; it was killing me. I got a divorce, and found the love of my life Amy. My oldest does not want to accept it, and she is embaressed that she has two moms. I tell her that we both love her very much, and that she is not the only person with two moms. I told her families come in all different ways, and that mommy loves her momma very much. She still gets upset that she doesnt have a typical family.
