Wow, I can’t believe I’m doing this, but here we are. I felt the need to document and share our story, our journey with our youngest child who is LGBT 🏳️🌈.
First a little background-
We are a fairly traditional family; mom, dad and 3 kids. I’ll let you know right now, we’re not perfect. (Gasp) We deal with things through humor, sarcasm and love. We’re pretty open and honest. We spend a lot of time together as a family, family means everything to us.
We (hubby and I) have a pretty strong Mormon background, but right now we are inactive. We’ve been through the temple, etc. it just didn’t quite feel right anymore. I still think of us as a Mormon family. There are things we believe, things we struggle with and things we just don’t agree with.
I will try to unfold our story one chapter at a time. (There are a few chapters to lead us to where we are now)
Please don’t judge us by a certain chapter. Our story isn’t over yet, it’s just begun. I want others to know that they are not alone, that we felt the same way, that we had the same struggles. Therefore, this will be as raw and real as possible. I don’t know all the answers, but I’m learning and growing everyday and in a much better place this past month.
