    Hi, I saw this in the UK based daily newspaper, The Metro.

    What elderly man writes a letter to his family in his maths exercise book? A made up one. Was it a fake or was it real?

    Dear Christine:

    I’m disappointed in you as a daughter. You’re correct that we have a “shame in the family”, but mistaken about what it is.

    Kicking Chad out of your home simply because he told you he was gay is the real “abomination” here. A parent disowning her child is what goes “against nature”.

    The only intelligent thing I heard you saying in all this was that “you didn’t raise your son to be gay”. Of course you didn’t. He was born this way and didn’t chase it any more than he being left-handed.

    You however, have made a choice of being hurtful, narrow-minded and backward. So, while we are in the business of disowning our children, I think I’ll take this moment to say goodbye to you. I now have a fabulous (as the gays put it) grandson to raise, and I don’t have time for heart-less B-word of a daughter.

    If you find your heart, give us a call

    - Dad’

    It's lovely, although there is a logistical problem. The handwritten letter is all over facebook and it's been noted that it is in the possession of the daughter it was given to, and that it makes little sense that she would post it online.

    The only thing I could guess at was that granddad took a pic of the letter before sending it to her.

    The grandad took the grandson in.
