‘He’s been saving his pocket change. I thought nothing of it ’til I came home to this.’: Daughter finds pill bottle, instantly ‘bursts into tears’ thanks to Dad’s act of kindness despite losing his job

“He was laid off from his job. He truly loved being able to go to work and misses all the people. He’s always lived paycheck to paycheck, but we always had a roof over our head, food on the table, and faith we’d be okay. ‘I love you, it’s going to be okay. Daddy’s going to be okay.’ He wasn’t worried about himself, he just wanted to make sure I knew he loved me.”

“I knew the consequences of reacting on this feeling. Why would I marry a man – someone I could never love?

Being in a society where people tell you that you can’t be both Christian and homosexual made me truly question these boundaries.”
