Ever since I came out to my parents in the Summer of 2008, they have been very loving and do all they can to show that they accept me the way I am.
They also try to bond with Carlos, my boyfriend:
My dad (a financial adviser) gives Carlos financial advice. My mom (a part-time real estate agent) spent the last year working with Carlos to buy a house.
When we stayed at their bed and breakfast last weekend, they had these pillow cases on the bed - specially ordered by my mom from my younger sister who runs a part-time monogramming business.
