How do people come out of the closet to their families and their own children? These true stories of lesbian and gay parents opening up with their children are both heartbreaking and heartwarming, but above all, they are honest. The stories explore such questions as How does one begin? Why do some children react well while others never accept the truth? Why do these parents feel they must risk changing their child’s world by telling them? For anyone sensitive to the dilemma of explaining a socially difficult subject to a child, this is an excellent book.
