Ok. I am 24 years old and my husband is 26 (we are young... I know). We are raising our 14 year old Foster Daughter whom we JUST found out is Gay. The problem is: We are very religious people and are finding it difficult to address this whole Gay subject. My daughter doesn't really like taking advice from me, or talking to me about this subject because technically, I am too young to be her mother. I am only 10 years older than her. But we love her just as if she was our own daughter. She appreciates our love and dedication to her, but since her Therapist outed her as being Gay... we've been going at it. I am tired of walking on egg shells around her. I'm hurt, my husband is angry, and my daughter is frustrated. We all just want our home to go back to "normal"... but I fear it will never be how it used to be :(
We live a really good life. I own my own business, my husband has a great job, we have a lovely home, nice car... its a seemly GREAT life. I feel like we provide everything an underprivileged child could want - loving parents, nice big room, and she gets almost anything she wants! BUT ALL OF THIS SEEMS LIKE ITS NOT GOOD ENOUGH. She has such a funky attitude about this whole Gay thing... aren't I the one that's supposed to be upset?? WHAT THE HELL IS SHE SO MAD ABOUT??? I know a lot of you wish you had loving and understanding parents... I just don't get this girl sometimes.
I sometimes fantasize about how "back to normal" our lives would be if she went to another home. But I don't want that for her. She deserves parents that will stick it out with her no matter what! But I feel like she is just pushing me away.... I don't know how much more of this I can take... I'm only human!
