  1. What a beautiful story! It made me cry. Thank you for sharing it with us.

  2. Eduardo Martinez Zapata says:

    I have read and re-read your story several times, and am at a loss as to how to express my gratitude for your honest and REAL story. I just shared it with my ex-wife, Laura. This, after my partner and soulmate, Michael, gifted your writing to me on New Years, I’m a gay father of two wonderful beings, Sofia (15) and David (12). Your story is theirs.

All my love to you and your queer family!!
