Congratulations Steph! That's wonderful news. Your mum is quite the person - that was a very long letter for a British mother to write. My mother's record is 11 words!

My American Mother could write a tome and say absolutely nothing. I say raise a glass to British mothers and their succinctness.

This is great to hear.  I remember your letter was my inspiration to coming out to my own parents, and it's wonderful to see a happy resolution!

Hey there Melissa,

That's basically what happened to me.  I ended up forcing myself to come out at work.  I was out everywhere except at work.  It was harder and harder for me to conceal it any longer.  It got to the point where people were getting really confused about me from my presentation, I had no choice I had to come out to them.

But before I did I ensured that there were several things in place first.  When you are ready give me a shout and I'll relate how my coming out went.  I may put it in the Wiki (if I get the time ) :)

ummmm....Steph,

Received the letter you wrote your mom,

I have never read such a tender and caring letter. I too was had the same reaction as Leah. A lump to form in my the back of my throat, silence and to just ponder for a moment over the wealth of information you used. The way you say all the information is so perfectly worded and can not be taken any other way than well thought out and serious mind set. Thank you for sharing it and for being there for others on Susan's Place.

I read it to Leah just a few minutes ago and she was very moved by it. She is now very quiet and has gone to bed. I hope this will be instrumental in helping her decide there is a way to share her choice of direction for her life now with those we love and care about too.

Thanks again,

Peggiann

Looks like the Wiki option might save some typing Steph. :)

By the way your doing a fantastic job there.

Okay, now I'm interested.  Could I get a copy too?  If you want, I can PM you my email address.

No problems Melissa, PM your email address, and I'll send you a copy.

And I think you are right Shelley,  I should be able to squeeze it in, but at the moment I'm busy with a new article called a "Guide to Coming Out at the Workplace" .

Chat later

Steph
