My Daughter Just Told Me She Is Gay?1

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.

I got my father's old iPod and put my music on it. I've been listening to that a lot lately. I'm much more quiet when I'm listening to music, which I like. I hate always wanting to say something. Music helps me relax.

Four Months

It's been just over four months since i came out to my mom that i was bisexual, and i still feel like she hasnt accepted it. In the beginning she said she would and she did. But now she makes these hurtful jokes, and sometimes uses it against me. I find myself somedays counting the days until I'm 18 so i can get out already.

My mother talked to me about getting pregnancy today... bleh.

So yeah. I had asked my mom if we could go to Starbucks. So we do, and while we're there, she talks to me about when I should have sex, and about pregnancy, and the whole straight sex talk. She doesn't know I'm queer, so I was like "Omigod" through the whole thing. And then she makes sex references, and I'm thinking, "TMI. I'm a lesbian!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" It was surreal.

Just got off the phone with my mother, i'm living alone no parents around and she still gets to me...

Don't get me wrong, i love her, i (usually) have a good relationship with her but when she's angry or tired or sleepy she takes it out on the world, and today the world turned out to be me. She hanged up on me.
