My Coming Out…Publicly

As most of you know, I am a single mother “by choice”. In my highlights I have a whole story that basically explains that I am a single parent, I used donor sperm, and conceived my son through IVF. What most of you may not know is that I am also a gay mom. Honestly, I just never felt it was anyone’s business that I needed to share that kind of information. *I don’t recall one person letting me know they were straight when I created my page, so it just never seemed like something I needed to share.*

Part of me is scared that people will judge me. I love all my followers and I’d hate to see some of these great people I’ve met along the way leave bc they can’t see beyond something so shallow, and so… none of anyone’s business. At the same time, I created this page as safe place for all parents/guardians to come, share a laugh, shed some tears, rip our hair out, and realize that we are all so different, and yet, so the same. If sharing my truth means losing some followers, then you were never part of The Mommy Confessions Tribe to begin with and don’t belong here anyway.

SO, during Pride Month, I am sharing with you all my truth- I am gay! *And don’t forget I’m also single, so if you have a single lesbian friend, send em my way! #helpasisterout #wereararebreed

Anyone who has an issue with that, #byeeeeee For everyone else, THANK YOU!!! Thank you for being a decent human being. Thank you for not giving AF; for minding your business; for laughing with me on this glorious, messy, and amazing ride. Thank you for being you and allowing me to be me. #TheMommyConfessionsTribe #WeAreInThisTogether
