Dad saves son trouble of coming out with amazing letter: “I’ve loved you since you were born”

Far too many parents make the life of their kids a living hell when they find out they are gay. That’s why a lot of gay kids end up on the streets or hating themselves.

That’s what makes the letter this father wrote to his son so special, so perfect.

I just had to share it with you.

That, is love.

5 Remarks

  1. So sweet. I wish I had an understanding father like that. When I came out at 16, my father laughed so hard. He thought I was insane. From then on I remained in the closet. I actually married a woman to please and do he could be proud of me. He died the same year I married. Now I lived this lie and I don’t how to get out because I don’t want to hurt my wife whom Ive learned to love do much. The only thing that comforts me is my two children. The big lesson I learned from my father is to never be like him — I will be a great father like that cool dad who wrote that touching letter. I will love my sons no matter what.

  2. I LOVE THIS!I read through blurry watery eyes and I’m so encouraged for the future of our country and our community.

  3. What a wonderful letter!

    Leo, I hope you can find a way to pursue happiness while being yourself at some point. I’ve had many friends in your situation and I must say that a good number of them have found a way to be honest and move forward in life with positive results. Sending good thoughts your way.

  4. Leo,

    It is always best to just be honest. The other person involved (your wife) will know exactly where you both stand in the situation. To me, that is true love, being totally honest. It might not be the easiest way to approach it but nothing is going to get in the way in the future if you do.

  5. Leo,you are living your dads life and he is dead. Life is too short to be living a dead mans dreams.
