My Gay Kid Is Lucky… But He Shouldn’t Have to Be

How to respond to your kid when he/she comes out:

I love you. You are going to have a wonderful life. I am so lucky to have you for a kid.

You might recognize part of this picture, but here is the uncut version.  Sitting next to Bug is his little brother. Let’s call him Numbers.
Bug and Numbers have been attached at the hip since little baby Numbers came into the world.  So, it makes sense that having a gay brother would be something that affects his life too.
Here’s my new blog talking about just that:

Sorry for the delay.  Life has been a extra special brand of crazy lately, but rest assured, I have not abandoned the blog.  
In this post I wrote about the question “Who is in a gay family?”.  I’d be interested to know how you would answer the question too.

Lately, we have been talking a lot about whether we should leave the midwest and relocate to somewhere more liberal.  It’s a difficult and complicated question for a lot of reasons.
