Sam’s mom and dad don’t want people to focus on the baby’s differences. They’re human, so they haven’t known how to explain this to people who are so caring and are interested in this new, little American. His parents want people to share in the joy of this gift I’m giving to his family, and the greater American family.
Many people won’t understand… and I understand that. Some will think Sam should not be allowed to be born because they fear a gay child won’t be considered “perfect” in your world. (But tell me, what do you earthlings consider “perfect” or even “normal” anyway? Have you peeked down any grocery store isle, or school hallway, or into your office lunchroom lately? Or considered the odd celebrities you celebrate as “perfect” on t.v.? Have you noticed I make ‘em all shapes and sizes? Believe me, there is no “perfect”!)
Many people will express sympathy, but you don’t want or need that, because Sam will be a joy. You will have to trust me on this.
I know it will take time to grasp this and come to accept that I only want the best for you, and I only give my best. Remember though: “My ways are not your ways, my thoughts are not your thoughts… for as the heavens are higher than the earth, my ways are higher than yours!”
I wrote that all down for you in the Good Book! Look it up! You claim that you believe me – now it’s time to live out that belief!
Please look to me as this new challenge and chapter of life unfolds in front of you. I promise to equip you. I won’t give you anything you can’t handle. I am answering your prayers. Sam can’t wait to meet you. I’m giving you ONLY THE BEST!
Sam’s Creator, Your Heavenly Father
We are a remarkably diverse nation of people. Sarah Palin and her ilk are doing great harm with their exclusive policies and campaign promises, all hidden behind the vicious delusions that LGBT people are broken. We are not.
For the love of this great nation, please wake up and read a little research. We are all born this way. We deserve to be loved, accepted, celebrated… and supported for being the marvelous creatures we were created to be.
