This is one awesome dream. And thanks for keeping us updated (although I'm sure this is for yourself as well)

You guys (the three of you, and maybe even your son RP) really should "journal" your journey for publication. It would be an inspiring story with all of it's ups and downs. I'd even be happy to offer my editing and proofing services!

Anyway, thanks again for giving us inspiration and hope. *edit* and silliness!

That's a great line! It is puzzling indeed that people are so puzzled by us!

(Then again, it isn't. The social conditioning for monogamy is very intensive!)

And yet, how strange that they think we're SO strange!

Next month I am moving closer to Redpepper's home...but not too close LOL!

Today, I took the day off work so thier son and me could have a day together as he has been asking for more time with me.

Tonight, Redpepper and her husband sat down with her parents to talk about me and about being polyamorous.

Now I sit and wait.

Thanks V,

No word yet. We'll keep you posted. This is kind of the last big hurdle..my family has known for months but live very far away.

exhausted, emotional and decompressing.

More to come I'm sure, but for now I need some time to think and get my footing again.

We might have to start a new thread dealing with Redpepper's parents newfound awareness and our journey towards acceptance. A note of point though; I am extremely proud of her strenght and humbled by the commitment to act in her husband when it was deemed time for her parents to know. It was like watching a switch being turned on. They both have faith in thier convictions and faith in me. I think they picked the right person to stand beside them on this journey.....that's me by the way

Thanks for the update Mono.....hope it's not too traumatic for RP's parents....my wife has recently come out about our 3 to a few of my employees.....they are quite taken aback by it, moreso than I had imagined they would be......I'm a bit disappointed in them for that, they've known us for 15 years. They look to my wife and I as family, so I guess that would be how some family members might respond. Hopefully, not yours.....I am not sure how soon it might be before she'll inform our sons.....I know she has plans to tell a few friends next week while she's away on a fishing trip with them. I won't be there as I won't get into small planes....just a chicken, I guess......continued good luck and happiness to you all.

Odd that I would be sharing success and happiness during such a troubling time for my chosen family. This is bringing us even closer together, bonding us and re-enforcing that we are all the right people to face this challenge to traditional thinking and expected relationship dynamics.

I love Redpepper more than ever, am completely committed to the well being of her, her husband and son. I will do what I can to help her parents understand as well. I truly believe they simply have to remember the time we have all shared during the last nine months. They know we are all happy and cared for; they simply have to open their hearts to what their eyes have already seen.
