We received your letter.This is about what I expected. And it makes me glad that I wrote it as a letter. I am trying to figure out what I am feeling. I think I feel a little (and forgive me for this) ashamed or embarrassed and sad. Why though, I have no idea. The embarrassed part might be because whenever I share something about myself that I know the other person will not think highly of I feel shame. And I feel sad because I know this is not easy for them.
We love you.
There is much for us to process.
We will call you; it will take us a few days, however.

Response 1 to my "coming out" letter
This morning I got to my email after having a really wonderful evening that included book shopping, painting a picture, wine, journaling, some reading of the book "Eat Mango's Naked" by SARK. I was in a great place. I didn't think they would get the letter so fast! But they did. This is from my brother.
