Last year there was a couple who came and their son had come out while they were on a cottage trip. They were scheduled to be up there for three weeks. He was only there for a couple of days. He came out on the last day and said, “Bye” and just left.
They came to our meeting. The mother was very open about it. The father still had apprehensions and still couldn't really get his head around it. Three or four months later, he was much more accepting, much more loving and caring, speaking up at the meetings and even leading other parents through that conversation.
