How this all works (because it does).

Here's how it works: A woman serves her country for years, and she never really stops. She retains integrity by refusing to deny her love for another adult human being. When confronted with persecution, she keeps serving her country by telling the truth. She never stops. I posted a message on here shortly after I became a de facto stepmother by forming a long-term relationship with a man who has children. I'm bisexual, and I just happened to fall in love with a man. One of the earliest movies I showed my stepdaughter was Serving in Silence. I impressed upon my stepchildren my respect for you, Grethe, and my absolute belief that sexual orientation is actually not a concern to their father or me. Maybe that's why my stepdaughter felt comfortable coming out as bisexual earlier this year. Maybe that's why she introduced us to her girlfriend, and we were able to see what a caring, considerate and sweet girlfriend our sweetheart can be. It was one of the most precious days of my life, and you fought for it, Grethe. For anyone else, this is how it works. People do listen, this all does matter, and someone like me is applauding...somewhere.

Thank you Marie. You clearly illustrate what respect for your children has created also. Your belief in them and their understanding has set it up so they know they can trust you to respect them in their journey for finding themselves. Congratulations on your parenting and to your children believing in themselves.
