Unspoken words from ‘Voices from the Rainbow’
“In 2010 I received an email from a handsome young gay man who told me he could never come out to his parents. He told me he was working on the letter that I requested, a letter to his parents – the one he wished he could send them. Recently I received this email.”
Dear Momma Traci
I really never wrote that letter to my parents-I talked to your about it -but I never did!
It was too hard a task to even start.
I had no words.
Read the first 30 pages this morning. So emotional and raw. Reading your thoughts and actions as a mother helped me to understand a perspective I hadn't thought about before.
Looks like I'll make it to the post office tomorrow, I have two more gift books I need to package up. All 52 friends who shared their stories for my book get a gift book - including my friends in The Netherlands, Canada, United Kingdom, London, Italy and Venezuela. My labor of love is almost complete : )
