Dear Gerald,

Life as you know it is about to change. Don't be afraid of it. You will know joy as you have never known joy. No, it's not going to be all rosy and perfect, but then nothing is. Those who truly loved you will still love you, and will still be proud of you. You have been blessed with a great family full of supportive or at least accepting people. In your family, love is truly unconditional. Just go with the feelings, and don't be embarrassed or ashamed of who you are.

Love from the future,
Gerald
