Hi!

My family’s reaction was a mixed bag. Ultimately, they accepted it and made sure to let me know I was loved no matter what. They were upset I had kept it a secret for so long so we had to begin with unpacking why I never felt comfortable enough to tell them. There were lots of speed bumps along the way but I was so certain about who I was and who I loved that I didn’t accept anything less than acceptance.

Together, always,
