Dad Overhears Son Planning to Come Out, Writes Him a Letter Telling Him It Was Okay
The Father of the Year award goes to this man for supporting his son's choices. He overhears his teenage son, Nate, talking to his boyfriend Mike on the phone, trying to figure out how to tell his family. Instead of waiting for Nate to come up with a plan and the courage to tell them, dad took matters into his own hands and wrote Nate a letter:
If that's not enough, he ended with: 'P.S. Your mom and I think you and Mike make a cute couple.'
This came from a Facebook posting by a pro-gay clothing company and is getting lots of attention. The post has over 14,000 likes and close to 10,000 shares.
If only everyone could have such a supporting family that is filled with unconditional love. After all, that's what having children is all about.
