    Thanks, Keyzy! She was a wise woman...we talked a lot about me being gay in the 5 years between falling in love with Blaize and her death. I lived in a very conservative part of Ohio but my grandma always said that love doesn't know gender. She loved Blaize and was just happy that I was happy. I only wish that she could've lived long enough to see us together permanently...but I know she's with us. :)

    Your kids are very lucky to have you for a mom. My parents never liked me (which is why I was raised by my grandparents from the age of 14 months old) but they're coming around more and more.

    ((((Bianca)))) I'm glad I made you laugh but sorry I made you cry. No need for tears though, I had an awesome life with my grandparents. Believe me, they loved me enough that I never missed my parents...I never felt like I was missing out, instead I felt lucky to be loved so much and so unconditionally. :)

    Peeps, that was a wonderful story...my grandmother died still waiting for me to find "a nice man" I never had the heart to tell her that wasnt going to happen. I cant even find a nice girl...lol

    I found a nice man but that was the problem! When I came out my Grandmother sent me a letter quoting bible scriptures and basically danging me to hell, havent spoken to her since, she's 94 now and although she hates it and won't comment, my Mom tells her all the time how well my partner and I are doing.
    My favorite Grandfather who passed many years ago kept asking my Mom why she was surprised. He was very accepting from day one! I only regret that he didn't live long enough to see my Mom finally accept me back into the family.

    It just plain stinks that it takes family members so long to come around, if at all

    The best advice I was ever given was this..."you've known it probably you're whole life, they just found out, give them time to realize you're the same person you always were". Took about 4 years but they (the ones I care about) are all great now. I know everyone is not so fortunate but I agree with you Tybin, it's so sad!
