Today my daughter and I were coming home from my doctor's appointment and she asked me if she could talk with me on the way home and I said yes, I really am interested in what you have to say. So my daughter tells me remember the boy I had a crush on? I replied yes. She tells me it was a lie. I said what do you mean, and my daughter replied I didn't have a crush on a boy i had a crush on a girl. My daughter said she told me that because she didn't want me or her dad to think that she was a freak. I was shocked but I kept my emotions to myself and I said that I love her no matter what and if she was gay her dad and I will love you (my daughter) no matter what. We accept you however you feel you need to live your life. Now my daughter is in bed and my husband is at work I can't help it, I am concerned. My husband told our daughter that she can do nothing to keep us from loving her and he said he has his shoulder for her if she feels she wants to talk. All day I kept telling her how proud I was of her to come to us and be so open and honest. I am looking in to getting her to a gay mentor to talk with her to help her understand things that i cannot. So as a mom how do you feel? I look forward to hearing from you thanks.
