Mom Pens Amazing Letter Of Support To Son Who Came Out On Facebook

Michelle Conway McClain is showing moms around the world how it's done with a letter that's going viral around the web. Shortly after learning that her young son came out of the closet in a Facebook post, Michelle wrote a awwww-inducing letter of support that brings attention to the real issues parents should worry about: ants.

Writes Michelle:

Zach,
I was surprised by your facebook post where you came out. I want you to know that I love you unconditionally. I love you with my actions, not just my words. I’m so proud of you. You are the bravest person I know. I’ll fight for you always. Your sexual orientation does not define you. You are still the boy who forever won my heart. The only thing that concerns me is the number of empty soda cups and tea bottles in your room. Throw them away before ants come inside.

I love you always -
Mom

Shortly after a picture of the letter was posted to Have a Gay Day's Facebook page, Michelle defended it as authentic. "This note is not fake. I wrote it to my son on the morning of 8/30/13 when I read on Facebook before work that he came out as bisexual. And I meant every word. I'm so proud of him!"
