One thought on “How Abandoned Queer Kids Find the Strength to Love Their Families

  1. My mom threw me out at 17 when I came out and we didn’t speak for 13 years…it was just a few months before she died that the ground started to thaw between us, and then I got the call that she was dying from my aunt. I missed her by minutes. She was just a body kept alive by machines when I got there. I was there first out of the three of us left.

    I couldn’t cry for her until I went home and as I was going through stuff to give to the funeral home that I found the last birthday card I would ever get from my mother, and I can still feel that loss, even though that was 2000.

    Your mom is your mom forever and you can’t forget the only real love you first feel on earth.
