My daughter told me she was gay when she was in middle school. My strong religious background always taught me that gay sexuality was wrong, so she dated boys in high school. Once she was out on her own, she made her own choices. I have never stopped loving her and never will. When she announced in January that she was engaged to marry her girlfriend, I went through every emotion known to mankind. My biggest struggle wasn't that she was marrying a female, although that was certainly part of it, but that they had only known each other a couple months. Since gay marriage is not legal here in Texas yet, they drove to Oklahoma to be married today. My husband and I, as well as our two sons, will be attending their reception.
Congratulations to you both!
34 “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
John 13:34-35 (NIV)
UPDATE - These two are now divorced.
