God bless the children

T. Everhart

Thank heavens for adults both hetero and homo that support equal rights for everyone. I truly appreciate your time and effort in any way that presents itself.

In birth, marriage and death are all our God-given rights. I am amazed and grateful for anyone whom supports diversity, because this is what our country stands for.

I am a granddaughter of an immigrant and a mother of a gay teenager. My son is smart, funny, compassionate and gives back to his community and his supportive, loving family. His father, his brother, and I look forward to his wedding and children someday. We treasure him and hope he is surrounded by a partner that respects and loves him just as we do our “straight” son.

Please remember that no matter what your thoughts are, there are children to be nurtured no matter how look or feel. My child may grow up to be someone in your community you may need someday, regardless of who he falls in love with.
