Heartbroken. …….my son is gay
My baby boy my youngest child is gay and yes I’m heartbroken not by the fact his gay but by how I found out .
I’ve always known my son was never a lads lad he was never into football he liked dancing he would prefer to paint his nails and play with hair then go outside to kick a ball about .
From such a very early age he had such good taste in clothes the outfits he would pick to wear always matched I used to joke with him you’re my little gay boy which he always replied ohh mum I’ve got a girl friend.
I’ve always spoke to him about his feelings and we would joke about being gay never once meant in a nasty way in just a way to try to help him feel more comfortable about his sexuality and that when he decided to come out I would hope he would tell me but this is why I’m heartbroken he never came out to me I found out by his school teacher who called me and she explained to me about my 12-year-old son and that prehaps I should talk to him.
So straight after the phone call I went upstairs to my son and gave him a hug and told him how proud I was of him and I asked him why he didn’t tell me was it because I always joked about it his reply was “no mum it’s coz you’re proud of me and I know you would want to announce to everyone I’m gay but I would like to tell people first”
So yes I’m heartbroken on how I found out but omg I so bloody proud of son xx
I also am so proud of my daughter Mackensie who is slightly older than her brother for making him feel safe at school and showing him how truly awesome he is.
I am blessed with two confident happy and caring children what more could a mother want? I love my Children more than life it’s self, every day they make me realise what true happiness is, I wouldn’t change anything about either of them from the second they were born i discovered what true love is.
