My uncle s wedding

When Uncle was very young, Grammy would pawn him off on mom. Read it to my little cousin as its a kids book. The author included a little personalized note which was a special touch! I love that it shows that the make up of a family can be different but love is what is really important.

My cousin loved it and I also enjoyed it. Grammy has diabetes and is on the transplant list for a new kidney. It is the charming story of the preparations for, and the ceremony of, a marriage of two loving men, as seen through the young eyes of Andy, the nephew of one of the men getting married.

She started to hide money away and find ways to drop off the rent checks just so they can have a place to live for another month.

I think Uncle still carries some pain from growing up in an environment like that. She eventually got enough momey saved to move after she finished school.

Grammy would let the litter box get so bad, the cats would start pooping in the dinning room. Being gay myself I also really enjoyed this sweet telling of a wedding.
