Is Your Child Gay?

My name is Deborah Hawkins, and my son David is gay.  Being his mother has been both a blessing and growing experience, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

If you are a parent of a gay child, or if you are wondering if your child might be gay, I want to help you.  From my personal experience, I understand when facing this type of situation it can be very challenging for families. I’d like to share my story and what I've learned, so that you may know the peace and acceptance that can be available for you.

I know you may have many questions and fears. Let me share with you what I've learned:

    * How to respond when your child tells you he or she might be gay.

    * How to cope with feelings of guilt, shame, and fear.

    * How to respond when your family, religious community or town seem resistant to your child being gay.

    * When should you bring the subject up with your child?

    * How to cope if your spouse is totally opposed to your child being gay. 

If you would like to know more about how to respond to these and other related issues, please ask a question.  I will send you an email which includes a link to an interview I did to answer questions for parents and offer more information and support immediately. Please note that your personal information will be kept confidential - not shared at any time.  My goal is simply to share my story in hopes of helping someone else.

I urge you to contact me, as I know how difficult and lonely this process can seem.  With patience and support there can be peace, acceptance and love in our families.  I look forward to hearing from each of you and thank you so much for visiting.

Warmest wishes,

Deborah Hawkins
