I Hope She’s a PFLAG Mom Someday

“Amelia” bills herself as “Mother, wife, partner and breadwinner”.  Others call her a hero.  She’d reject that idea, but I kinda think that not only does she fit the idea of hero to many, but also that we need more heroes like her.

Amelia is the mother who first wrote a little blog post about her 6-year-old son being in love with the character Blaine on the TV show Glee.  She has since become a regular contributor to The Huffington Post.  Many would also proclaim her as the poster-person for what unconditional love looks like.

Amelia’s post this week confronts a situation that will surely have everyone talking.  In the article, we learn that her son, now 7-years-old, has come out as gay.

All I can say is that I truly believe this wife and mother represents the future.  I’d like to believe that if all parents were this supportive, accepting and loving of their children, there’d be no reason to have a PFLAG.

Until then, I would love to have her as a PFLAG Mom.
