It seems to me that part of celebrating community is to rejoice in the successes, triumphs, and blessings of others. The following little video made me laugh, cry, and cheer for these two dads and their growing family... even though I have never met them.
Perhaps we should all forward this moment of joy to every person we know who is struggling with the coming-out process. Or maybe we should send it to every politician and religious leader who abuses their power to discriminate against our relationships and families. More importantly, I wish every parent who will tragically reject their LGBTQ child this Christmas could somehow see it.
As a gay dad who dreams of becoming a grandparent, this glimpse into the happiness of another family is a beautiful gift that touches my heart. To me, this is love in action. Turn up your speakers and enjoy!
