It's Official

Well, my son told me today he is in a relationship. He said he has a boyfriend. I must be honest and say I had a feeling his new friend was more than just a friend. It's funny how I felt when he finally told me.  I have been crying about it quite a bit today. The tears are mainly for what lies ahead for him. I pray he makes good choices and finds what he needs in this life. I did tell him I love him very much and will always be his Dad no matter what life brings.

I wish him the best of luck and my prayers are with him. (and with you) He is very lucky to have you as his dad to help understand him. Do you think you will tell him?

I think I understand your tears and your fears.

@moho, I have thought about telling him yes. But I have a feeling he already knows about me too.

Bror said...

@ Quiet: Thanks for understanding. It helps a lot.

Hugs Bror!

I'm glad he felt enough trust in you to share this and replying with unconditional love for him I'm sure is not hard at all coming from you. Although I know you say you cried for him I'm sure the tears are also part relief for him that he can be himself regardless and no parent could possibly want anything less for their child!

Hugs,pl

What PL said. And what MoHo in Vegas said too. You now face an entirely new situation for yourself as well. If you want to make things as easy as possible for your son, it's now time to seriously consider coming out to him yourself. Consider whether that'd help, and talk about it with your wife. I suspect she'll still not want it disclosed, but you both need to think of what's best for your son.

Isn't it strange how even though we both pretty much knew about our son, now that it's "official" it seems so much more real. Thanks for the hug this afternoon. I needed it soooo much! You are the best Dad he could ever have...tailor made just for him. If you feel that telling him about yourself is the right thing to do, go for it. He needs to know just how much we understand what he's going through. I love you. Keep hugging me.

I've been gone and just catching up!

Wow! All I can say is "WOW!" What a blessing! What an opportunity! Seize it. Both you and Cici. Make it work for you and for your son!

You did the right thing by telling him that. I think if he loves you too then he'll be careful, for your sake.

God bless!
