Bay Area-based father Anthony Hamilton shared the story of how he came to accept his gay son on ozy.com. This is a very powerful testimony.

Excerpts: "I couldn’t help but remember my own early days, before I’d accepted my son. I too must have sounded undeniably stupid, not knowing that each word I spoke on the subject was empty, thoughtless." (...) "I was standing in the airport near the gate waiting for my son.
