In coming out to my family I now get to enjoy it when they ask how Redpepper and her family are doing..that is worth it for me
My parents have shown an interest in knowing more about her husband as well as the rest of her family. This is pretty big for them as I was traditionally married for over 16 years. My ex-wife and daughter are clearly special to them so I respect and appreciate their acceptance even if it is without understanding
I am free to express my caring for my new family without secrets and I love that!
