I cannot speak for Nina, but I might kind of know what she's asking, and I have struggled with similar thoughts. Being a Mother changes you and makes you think about things differently. I'll ask it like this: What if Elijah comes to you one day and says "Mom, I met this man. We are in love and he makes me want to be a better person every day. We want to get married and raise a family together. I have never been happier."

How do you respond? Do you say that he isn't allowed to be happy? Do you tell him that he somehow has to fundamentally change who he is somehow (I don't even know that someone can do that)? Do you tell him to marry a woman and live a lie?

I hope I'm coming across as genuine and that real, honest discussion can happen. I was raised to believe that homosexuality was a sin, but now I have more questions than answers. I guess I thought that by the time I was a "grown-up" and had my own kids, I'd know all the answers, but that definitely isn't the case!
