Fortunate Families is a group of Catholic parents with lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender children supporting others like us to affirm, celebrate and seek equality for our families. Our faith journey calls us to strive for justice for all our children. As a Catholic parent with two gay children, I have found a wonderful and thoughtful support system within the members of Fortunate Families. It's such a relief to be in the presence of other Catholics who accept their LGBT children for who they are! The individual presence of compassionate members as well as the newsletter, website and listening parents have been a tremedous help to me. The Fortunate Families members listen to parents, help one another love and listen to our children, help parents conect to each other and find the resources for their journey of acceptance and love, and, finally, help parents use their voices to transform the Church and society.
