Soooo my Foster Daughter packed all of her things and left...
Wait... let me back up.
Tuesday I took her to wash her clothes. While her clothes were washing I spotted something strange in the machine... MENS BOXERS! Apparently she had been wearing mens boxers since she came to my home 6 months ago. I proceeded to ask her questions about the boxers... and which time she became very angry/upset. Shen then told me that I'm always trying to mind her business; basically to butt out!!
So I have taken everyone's advice and just stopped talking about the whole Gay subject... we all have continued to lead our normal lives like we have been doing. My daughter has weekly Bible Study as well as going to the Hall twice a week with us. She is learning more and more about what Jehovah God really wants from her... and what is required of her to fully serve him.
My daughter and I are back to our usual selves! Laughing, joking, playing around, shopping... just like old times. We havent talked about the whole gay thing... because like I said in my last journal, Im DONE bringing it up. I love her so much... and hope things stay this good between us. Call me crazy... but I think this whole gay thing might just be a faze for her? Maybe her way of getting attention? Im not down-playing her homosexual feelings or anything... I just feel that this whole gay thing will blow over one day.
My daughter is on punishment for bringing home a big, fat "F" on her report card. Smh... She's talking waaay too much in class; being the class clown. Funny thing is... she doesn't mind being on punishment. WOW.
Since it was Presidents day today, my daughter had off from school. We spent the WHOLE day together :) She went with me to my office, we went shopping to pick up a few things she needed, we did laundry... and just talked. We didn't talk too much about her being gay, because you know what?? I'm done having those conversations with her. I've realized that this is HER life!! I will keep this situation prayerful... but give her room to be her, and love her no matter what her decisions are. But loving her doesn't mean I will EVER condone or support the whole gay thing.
Ok. I am 24 years old and my husband is 26 (we are young... I know). We are raising our 14 year old Foster Daughter whom we JUST found out is Gay. The problem is: We are very religious people and are finding it difficult to address this whole Gay subject. My daughter doesn't really like taking advice from me, or talking to me about this subject because technically, I am too young to be her mother. I am only 10 years older than her. But we love her just as if she was our own daughter. She appreciates our love and dedication to her, but since her Therapist outed her as being Gay...
AM I THAT BAD OF A PERSON??
When my daughter came home from school... I sat and talked with her about the whole "Gay" subject again. She was mortified and didn't even want to talk... but she managed to do so. I just told her that I want her to educate herself on s few things. Things like STD's, people stereotyping her, and some prejudices she might have to endure as a result of her lifestyle. I just want her to be well informed, that way she can know how to deal with different things.
SHE of course basically told me that I'm not having to deal with being Gay... and that I didn't know what I was talking about :-/
Today my daughter said she felt like she was going crazy! She said she is still very much so angry at her Therapist. We didn't talk about her being Gay today... but I feel that our whole household has changed because of this information. My husband and I are trying not to treat her any differently, but I have to admit guys... I feel differently towards her :(
I am a Foster Parent to a 14 year old girl. She has been in my and my husband's care for almost 6 months now... we love her very much :)
My daughter has to go to weekly therapy sessions, because of things that happened in her biological mothers home. As I was picking her up recently from therapy, her Therapist pulled me to the side. She told me that my daughter revealed to her that she was a LESBIAN!!
I was (am) in complete shock! Well... we did suspect that she was Gay, because of her masculine dress and ways... but to hear it confirmed... we are just torn about this.
