Long story short, I am adopted, and I am out to most people in my life, my parents know and support me and same with their families. My friends know as well. My birth family and I have maintained close contact through the years, though I dont know or care who my biological father is. My biological mother and I are not close, but I am close with the rest of my biological family. I am not out to them though, and I feel like this year during my visit over New Years that my resolution should be to come out to them. They deserve to know, and I need to be able to be completely open with them and lay my cards on the line. I'm just nervous. My grandfather passed away in the spring, and their wedding anniversary is tommorow. The only time I could tell him was when I was alone with his casket, and that made me feel awful, so I need to do this before I lose the chance with another member of my family, most likely my Grandmother. She is RC, so I'm not sure how she will take it, especially with the stress she's been going through. My uncles have been known to be homophobic, but my aunt's have not. My one cousin knows and is completely awesome about it. I'm not worried about my cousin, more just my Grandma and my uncles. Any advice? Ive come out a lot but it never seems to be any easier when dealing with family members.
