Then I told them that the majority of people I chat with or e-mail are gay. I have talked about these people often. Tabitha and Adam are familiar with their names and also with portions of their blogs. My children are familiar with the background and stories of many of my friends. Now they added in the "gay" dimension. They were silent and thoughtful for a moment. Then, almost as one they talked about how everyone needs to talk to someone. They told me they were glad my friends and I could talk to each other. Then my kids said they hoped, someday, all my friends would come visit us, so they could meet them, and become friends with them, too.
My children are amazing. I really, really love them.
