What I Was Taught vs. What I Have Come To Believe...

are completely different. Growing up, it was "wrong". As I have spent more time on earth and met many wonderful Gay people, my beliefs have changed. I do believe that there are some people who are Gay because it is trendy, shocking, or something new...but I also believe that there are others who did not have a choice in the matter.

As for my daughters knowing what it means to be Gay...well, right now they are 5 and 10 months. At this age, they are more interested in toys and making sure that they both get the same amount of attention from Mom, Dad, and the rest of the relatives. I am sure that at a later date, this subject will come up. When that time comes, we will discuss it and answer any questions that they may have. Both my husband and I try to parent our children in a way that they are not and will not be afraid to talk with us about anything and everything.

Open communication with kids is key. I can remember having so many questions that I was too nervous to ask my parents. We try to answer both of our girls' questions frankly and honestly, so they'll never be afraid to come to us.
