Personal growth is a lifetime journey of discovering who we are, and our orientation is just one small part of that. My husband, a go-with-the-flow, laid-back guy who never seems to get rattled, was just as low-key as his son. His coming out has nothing to do with you or what you imagined his life would be like.
