How All Parents Should Respond If Their Child Comes Out As Gay
Connor is a lucky kid.
But the letter shared to ANoteToMyKid.com provides a template for other parents' reactions to their kids coming out of closets, which will hopefully make Connor's situation less "lucky" and more "typical."
Writes Connor's mom in a letter that's quickly going viral:
I am writing you this letter so you have something tangible, something to hold onto if you should ever need it, to always remind you that we love you.
I am pretty proud that we have the kind of relationship in which you felt comfortable coming out to me at 13 years old. I am hoping that we have created an environment in our house in which you know you are loved, you are safe, and that we will support you and fight for you.
Dad and I love you very much. You are growing into such an amazing young man. You are pure potential. We can’t wait to see where it takes you!
