about 2 years ago jacob was being bullied online and matthew (who we didn't know at the time) would defend jacob in the comments. i noticed his sweet responses and was really touched so i showed the kids and jose. we all thanked him for being so kind to jacob & the kids started to dm eachother and developed a friendship over time. a year later ariel was having a meet n greet and matthew's mom, julie reached out to me about bringing matthew to florida from ohio to meet the kids as a surprise. that was the first time they met & our families have since become dear friends!
you never know how a small gesture of kindness may affect the life of another and your own. much love ♥ #serendipity
I am beyond proud of this boy. i am proud to be his mom. i am proud that i have helped raise a young man who is confident and strong and courageous and is not afraid to be who he is.
but, i am also proud of the response by all of you! my heart seriously is bursting with happiness and i'm not gonna lie, it brought tears to my eyes. happy tears, to see how far we've come. happy tears to read the beautiful words of support and solidarity for jacob and for the #lgbt community. i'm blown away by the positivity. thank you. i love you ❤🌈👬
