[Away from baddies]

Fucking hell it's been a long damn time since someone asked me if I was sure Jamie was my son because, 'you know he's not white, right?' Can't say I missed that.

Today's racism against my progeny brought to you by random woman at the hardware store where we were purchasing hangers. Really. A random woman I had met 3 seconds before, asked me if Jamie was really my son. Prompted by 'my son and I are looking for hangers' and literally nothing else. And I wasn't even asking HER! And then she asked me if he was an illegal. She wanted to know if I was 'covering for him'. Threatened to report us to ICE.

I-

My son is biracial and once I was old enough and...woke enough?...to realise that might mean he was the target of racism, I always worried about it. This is beyond worry now. The world is fucking terrifying and Jamie's not just biracial, he's also gay.

Jesus fucking Christ.

And as we were leaving she screamed 'make America great again' after us.

Yes. We really should. But not in the way she means.

Hey, foxy Roxy.

Two things.

1) Jamie is moving out this weekend, how are you about that?

2) Now that your wonderful parents are no longer with us, Thomas and I have been talking. If you wanted, Thomas and I could adopt you, like I did with Jamie. Sure you're an adult, but look- We would be honored if that is what you wanted. You're family already anyway. Then you would be included in everything legally, wills and the like.

We love you so much.

[Away from Baddies]

Soon there will be another baby here, and Victor, Kat and Deirdre are still in the guest room. So this weekend I'm moving into a place with all my boys.

I'm scaredexcited. Growing up I never thought I'd have anything like this. I never thought I would ever have love, let alone three loves, and surrounded by family (chosen and blood) who accept me.

Sometimes I sit still and I just breathe, and there's no fear. Not like there used to be. And it's so nice. I can just be me. I'm learning how to love me too, which I think is the most important. But if I am surrounded by so many people who like me, I must be likeable. So I sit and breathe in peace.

Thank you <3
