fbpx My Adult Daughter Came Out to Me as a Lesbian. What Do I Do?
Authored by Dr. Michelle Murray on January 17, 2023

Dear Dr. Michelle

My daughter is 22. She has graduated, got a job offer, and moved out of the house. Last week she called me and told me she is lesbian. She told me it is ok if I don’t accept her, and she will go away from the family. I really don’t know how to handle it. Please help me to accept this. Is it my fault?

Dear Ivy
