Unconditional Love

For 20 years I was married in what most people consider a "normal" marriage, with three beautiful kids that I adore with my life. But in 2009 I had a rude awakening, and realized I truly was unhappy with my marriage. Despite the judgment and criticism I was about to receive, I had no control over falling in love with a women from my past. A women I had to leave because of social issues that were unacceptable growing up.
After long months of thinking, I divorced my ex-husband and came clean to my children. As a mother, the last thing you would ever want is for your kids to suffer, but it had to be done.No turning back, or hiding from the truth. Since they were born, I established a very liberal upbringing, doors were wide open without judgement or violence. Although they were open-minded, the shift was hard,painful and sad. I suffered for months and regretted making my kids feel embarrassed and uncomfortable. What I had done was selfish, and I couldn't forgive myself for a long time.Fortunately, I raised three outstanding kids, who with time accepted the new lifestyle I had chosen without any sort of resentment towards me.
Its 2012 and I now live a very tranquil life with my partner and kids. We've had our rough patches, but have overcome all social and emotional obstacles. My children now feel comfortable enough to invite their friends over, invite us to family night at school and function like a normal family. "Normal" does not mean man and wife, it means acceptance, love, understanding and peace within a home. Home is where the heart is, no matter the race, ethnicity or sexual preference.
