Powerful Response #7:

Dan, I am a gay man and I am a Christian and believe it or not I have three kids. When I finally couldn’t hide it any longer and I came out to my wife, she packed up the kids and left me. She moved out of state 3 years ago and refused to let me have anything to do with any of my kids which broke my heart every day since. She wouldn’t let me talk to them on the phone or send them presents for birthdays or Christmas or anything.

To be honest I became suicidal a few times it got so hard. Then yesterday I read your post, and I emailed it to her sister who I still keep in touch with just hoping that it would make it to her and then four hours later my phone rang and guess who it was? My daughter who I haven’t talked to since she was three. I could barely talk to her I was bawling on the phone trying to pretend everything was ok.

After that I talked to my 2 sons and then finally to my ex wife and she said she read it and realized that she has been the opposite of a Christian to me. Then she said that she was sorry for everything she had done. She was bawling now and I start bawling again.

I asked her if there was anyway I could see the kids this Christmas. She didn’t say yes but she didn’t say no either. She said she’d think about it. Man that would be the best Christmas present a dad could ever ask for.

You have no idea how much I’ve missed my kids. They were ripped out of my life and I had no say in the matter. All because I was gay, no other reason. I was a good dad and she knows it.

And now they are back in my life. Maybe just a little bit right now, but I know that this is the start of what it will take to get them back in my life for good and THAT is something I had given up on.

Thank you Dan for your message I just thought you’d like to hear one good thing that happened to somebody because of it. Maybe this Christmas will be the first happy one I’ve had in a long time.
