Hi! I’m Brittany, single mom of a spectacular almost 13yr old girl named Grace. I am fortunate to have a good job so we do not need help with material things this year. However Grace came out to her father this year after MANY months of agonizing over whether or not to do so. Unfortunately he is very religious and not supportive and has been clear about that. Oklahoma isn’t a great state to be LGBTQ youth in and Grace struggles to connect with other kids her age due to both her orientation and her Asperger’s. If there is someone out there with an LGTBQ child of a similar age who wouldn’t mind setting them up as pen pals, it would absolutely make her entire year. She could really use some camaraderie from someone who’s dealing with similar issues. Thank you so much!

    Hello Erin! I am SO happy for both your daughter and your family! Thank you for being such a supportive and amazing parent. :) Grace gets along pretty famously with kids younger than her most of the time (Asperger’s has its upsides in a lot of ways) and I think that she would love the chance to help support and mentor someone a bit younger than her who’s walking a similar path in life. Feel free to email me at thebritt1@gmail.com and we can talk more. Thank you!

    Grace and Brittany- I cannot thank you enough for sharing your story. At my daughter's birthday dinner on Tuesday we were reading through all of the Together Letters and making our cards and letter list. We got to yours and I read it out loud to my family. I was unaware I had a kiddo that identified as LGBTQ until that very moment. Sharing your story during her birthday dinner gave her the courage to come out that night. I don't have any idea how long she would've held that inside, feeling unable to be her whole, authentic self, but my heart breaks at the thought. You guys are our heroes! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving me my real, whole daughter. She's 11 so she might be a little young for Grace to be interested in writing to, I know there's a pretty big difference between newly 11 and almost 13, but we're definitely open to the idea if you'd like. You guys are going to be part of our family story for the rest of our lives and I am so grateful.

    I passed this along to the teens in my homeschool group (lots of them are on the spectrum and/or LGBTQ+) but I'm emailing as well to have your info on hand in case anyone missed it. I'm sure she'll get tons of love from them!
