He’s actually 16 years old – in 11th grade. He’s also like Keyron and I a gay boy. Well, we’re no longer boys but still.
I try to help as much as I can. More of the story emerged tonight. His mom is Christian and giving him static about being gay. And of course who does he come to but the gay couple who just moved in a few weeks ago.
Now we both feel really bad. When we get some furniture oh who am I kidding. We don’t need to be adopting a 16 year old. I gave him $20 tonight and told him he’s ambitious and to follow that. Also asked him what he planned to do once he graduates from high school. Suggested he look into a college.
Right now I feel really awful about this whole thing.
