    This Is How It Is

    My son (19) came out to me about 5 months ago.  It was hard but I saw it coming.  I kept asking him if he had anything he wanted to tell me for about two weeks before he came out.    It took alot of courage for him and I was glad he did it.  He still has...

    Can Anyone Survive "half-in" & "half-out?"

    Came Out On Facebook!

    Yep, the first I knew was I was asleep on the couch and my 18 year old daughter woke me holding her laptop, saying: "have you seen this?". She was showing me my 14 year old son's latest Facebook status, it said: "haters gonna hate, but I'm gay". I was stunned, as he had hidden it...

    I've Adapted

    When I began tyo suspect my son was gay - when he was using the internet for cybersex - I was nervous and apprehensive. I didn't know how I could cope. But I told my son that he didn't have to hide and that whatever he tried or didn't try, I would be there for him. Now, almost a...
