Being ready for the ‘flood’ following a reveal to close family and friends just does not prepare you for the ease with which a lot of them accept us.
My Aunt Kathy helped mom with both my sister and I until I was about 2, and she has been extraordinarily close to sis and I all our lives. When that fateful day came and sis and I went to tell her about Paula and step out of the family closet, I was in no way prepared for her response.
Her words hit me like I never expected. “Well, it’s about time you said something. I’ve been waiting for a long time. Now sit down and I want to know EVERYTHING.”
So, so much better than the next several friends and family I told. She and my sis stayed right behind me as many relatives as they could.
Treasure the family who know Abbie, and let them see what wonderful person you are.
