Coming out as LGBT+ to your parents can be daunting, especially if you aren’t sure how they’re going to react. But while it’s one thing for your parents to support you, it’s another thing entirely for them to support your partner. But that’s what happened to Elite Daily editor Katie Corvino and her girlfriend.
I came out to my parents as bisexual a few weeks ago so for Christmas they got my girlfriend a gift, wrote her a card welcoming her into the family & thanked her for helping me through this past year Omg I'm sobbing pic.twitter.com/y0PkEZ4hmw

After Katie came out to her parents, they wrote her girlfriend a Christmas card, and honestly it’s one of the cutest things I’ve read.
Seriously, how freaking sweet is that??? The whole letter read:
Merry Christmas to you and your family. We hope you enjoy your holiday back home. We also want to thank you for making Katie happy. It has bee a rough year for our family and we are grateful for joy entering our lives again. We welcome you!
I’m not crying, you’re crying. (Fuck it, we’re all crying.)
Honestly, I wish every coming out story was this sweet. I love parents who support their children following their hearts and finding true love, and even more so when they accept the full package, significant other and all. Hopefully this is the way the world is going.
