About Our Letter Writers


Hello Dear Friends And Supporters!

This season, supportive moms (and dads, sisters, brothers, grandparents and friends too!) have gathered to send a holiday message to all LGBTQ children, teens and adults who are without family support and who would like a “stand-in Holiday family.” Knowing that not every parent is ready to accept her own LGBTQ child exactly as-is (as hard as this is for us to imagine), we have written to extend our love beyond that of our own family.

We are not celebrities. We are everyday friends and family from everyday homes. Many, but not all, have LGBTQ  children of our own (hence, some use full names and photos, and some do not). Many, but not all, are straight. In other words, even our writers here represent diversity. The vast majority of us came together because they heard about the project in our 2012 season, and many have never met me or each other. The common bond we share is that we are so full of love and pride for our own children–LGBTQ and straight–we wanted to extend ourselves beyond our own families and do something more.

We wish you a happy, love-filled Holiday Season!

With Love, Shamama

Here is one of the letters.


Welcome to our home, virtually speaking! You are officially apart of the clan, now.  Imagine meeting Mom, Dad, and your new sisters, Katya, Sabrina and me! Oh and of course, our three dogs, an overweight yorkie named Molly, a poodle named Chip and our yellow lovebird, Yogurt. I was one of three, but I am so excited to be one of four, now. I’ve been considering what we should do first. Since mom is catholic and dad is Jewish, our house is chalk full of traditions. We can play dreidel, or we can set up the tree. You can choose.

Mom is making chocolate chip cookies. You have to try them, even if only in your imagination, they are so great. I really do think she makes the best cookies I have ever tried, and I’ve surely tried them all. Don’t forget to write a Christmas letter. In our house we have a tradition that every Christmas we write a letter to each immediate member of the family. On Christmas morning, we each read our letters before we open any gifts. When we were younger, the gifts were what we were most excited for, but now that we’re older, the letters are what we really look forward to. They are a way of celebrating how much we love each other. I am very excited to write your letter. And I am very excited to hear the ones you will write!

My other favorite holiday tradition is watching endless Christmas movies. Mom’s favorite is The Santa Clause and White Christmas. Dad’s favorite is What a Wonderful Life. I think Sabrina’s favorite is Elf, and Katya’s is the Muppet’s Christmas Carol. In fact, Katya often breaks out into songs from the Muppet’s Christmas Carol, winter or summer. My favorite is a tossup. I like The Family Stone very much, but I also LOVE The Year Without Santa. What’s your favorite?

We don’t get snow here, but maybe we can go shopping or to the movies. Have you finished your Christmas shopping? I have one last thing to get, for dad. He really loves video games and I think the PlayStation 4 is in his future… I haven’t decided yet. Gifts aren’t the biggest deal in our house, but video games are! Since dad loves to game, we’ve been raised on everything before and after the NES, Nintendo or otherwise. Personally, my favorite is N64 and the Gamecube.  Christmas is always great because since there is no school, we have plenty of time to play video games. Sabrina and I are still trying to beat the Ocarina of Time. I think you might be some help.

Christmas and Hanukkah in our house are always full of laughs and games and delicious food. You will light the menorah to celebrate Hanukkah and then try seven different fish on Christmas, because mom is Italian. You may even get to meet Nonna, our grandmother. She can be loud, but she is the sweetest little old woman you will ever meet- plus, she will feed you until you explode.

After all the festivities, though, when everyone is asleep, maybe you can sneak out of bed with me and sit under the Christmas tree. Its lights are most beautiful at night, especially in the silence.

I hope you enjoy your stay with us! Thank you so much for choosing our family. 

Love,

Your holiday sister,

Bianca
