If your child told you that they were gay,how would you respond? For myself and my wife,we discussed this years ago. If that was who they are, it would not change our love for them. For someone to come out and verbally admit they are gay is a huge, scary thing to do. They are still our children. I have not had this happen as yet but we are very open minded people.

    We, my wife and I, have discussed this also and we agree with you. Indeed we have had 2 nieces declare they are gay and we still love them both.

    My daughters will be 14 and 8 soon… if they are gay…. that really doesn’t change how I love them… I will always love them no matter what… I am bisexual… I came to understand that and accepted it as did my late mother and my sisters…. It is just something that I am but it doesn’t define me…..My oldest daughter told me that she just likes that I am happy…. my youngest loves Ziyi like a second mother.. well, both of them do…… it just is a good thing and they are growing up being secure and loved.

    This did come into mind when my son was young, and over the years so much headlines, plus I lived 40 years in San Francisco, CA where it is an open topic and day to day life style. I being first brought up as a Catholic, then in my adult life, at 40 I became born again. I had my son at 38 years old, where their was more of a greater chance of he born with a disability, physical or mental. It was mandated then that a test prior to his birth they would be allowed (doctor) to insert a long needle into my belly and test the fluid that was removed from me, to determine if my son was going to have defects, so if I wanted I could Abort him. Now that to me was way upsetting, and I refused to be told of the results. Because whether my son would be disable, aboration was not an alternative for me. I considered my baby, Loved, from day of conception. Now, whether disability, or gay, the same would be discovered, and discussed openly, parents and child. I would have and did bring up my child as a Christian, because that was our belief and being it was, and is, upon his birth, LOVE, for my child, and his dad for his child, we both felt, as an adult he has to face life and decide his path in life. Aside from what we want for him. Had he stated he was Gay, then his father and I would not lose Love, which was established from time of his being, and being our belief in God, and Jesus since prior and after his birth remained the same, then he would be Loved, however his lifestyle would conflict with what we believe in way of Faith, not Religion. It would be a process of being able to meet and find a way to communicate, pray and seek God’s Wisdom. Because that is where we all, as one family, began our Life’s Course. This is my heartfelt answer, though our son is not Gay, he is Estranged by his choosing, and yet my LOVE for him will never change, despite he wants nothing to do with me, and his dad has died. Ponder, cause in the reality of Child and Parents, it’s not just about Gay, but everything that is enforced to take and replace LOVE God created us with…known as Sin. Thank you for allowing to response. Cjoy

    It sounds good that you are very open minded people and you still love your kids even after know that he is gay. Otherwise, in past many people throw them out from their homes. Your research paper writing service concerning affection and love towards your kids are extremely good.

    Awesome. Religion can have a huge impact on things but definitely love prevails. Thank you Sara for joining in.
