From the PG – When My Daughter Came Out

This was a lovely little piece to read this morning when I cracked open the Post-Gazette. A mother reflects on her reaction to her daughter's coming out …. not simply on how it made her (mom) feel, but what her (mom's) response meant for her daughter.

Such a simply, disheartening summary of how you can lose your child (and perhaps yourself?) if you reject her coming out.  The flipside is the opportunity — to provide love, refuge, succor, support and a touchstone as you figure this out together. 

Kudos to Naomi Weisberg Seigel for a lovely Mother's Day moment.
