From the day you were born, I’ve watched you and known you. I was there for the “pink phase” and the “death metal phase” and the phase you told us wasn’t a phase, the one where you “came out” as gay. That was confusing to us because – but you like boys. You always liked boys.
Yes, you explained, but you’re gay because … you think of yourself as a boy.
All I could think, all I can think is: I love you. We love you. Continue to teach us how.
This is my post for Friday Fictioneers, in response to Rochelle and Roger’s eye-catching (haha) prompt, coming in just under the wire, I hope. It’s been a long week. Hope all who read this have/had a great weekend!

Beautiful and emotional, that comes through so well. That’s how all parents should deal with this: accept and love.
Welcome to challenge of 100 words to a picture prompt. Enjoyed you story.
finally, out of the closet. the real challenge begins.
Unconditional love is something all deserve but not all receive. Well done.
I love this. The internal workings of a mother are so well spoken. Good job.
PS As you can see my comments are coming just under the wire. 😉 Busy week here, too.
Powerful write, Anne. I can feel the mothers lack of knowledge
but the want to be informed. The questions, the doubts and the
confusion are all palpable. Excellent ….

These parents are to be commended and I’m glad she was brave enough and trusted them enough to tell them.
