I feel my son is in a good place right now. As a parent my happiness is in direct association to where my kids are emotionally. If you've been following my blogs I wrote that my son has come to my husband and I. We are so proud of him for telling us at 15. I've read alot and most parents are the last to know. I'm so happy we have such a great relationship with him that we were the first he told. He has since told a good family friend of ours. She has many friends who are gay. She was surprised but accepting and suppportive. She actually said she would introduce him to some of her friends. So, it's been quite a stressful couple of weeks but I think we are all going to be ok. We have to find the right way to tell our 13 year old son. We are in therapy and I feel through her guidence we can make this ok for him as well. Thanks for being here Sparkfriends. I have to tell you I did not binge through all of this!!!!! A year and a half ago I would have turned to food in such an unhealthy destructive way. Instead of turning to food I would come hear and read others blogs. Blog myself. Read encouraging comments from others. Go to my message boards. So thanks with all my heart. I could come here to bear my soul when I couldn't go to another person in my life ! You have been here through the most life altering part of my world. Closer to me than my parents and sibling and friends. Thanks again!
