Sarah-McBride-transgender-DNC-1024x667

I have a private Facebook group for open minded Christian moms of LGBTQ kids. We have more than 1,200 moms in the group and sometimes we send letters to people or organizations we appreciate and support.

We have a lot to be thankful to Sarah McBride for …

Four years ago, as student body president at American University, she made national headlines when she came out as transgender in the school’s student-run paper, The Eagle.

In 2012 she became the first out trans woman to work at the White House when she interned for the Office of Public Engagement.

She was in the national spotlight in May of this year when she had a selfie go viral after she took a picture of herself in a restroom in North Carolina to protest a controversial law that bans transgender people from using bathrooms in line with their gender identity.

Then last month she made history as the first transgender person to speak at a major party convention.

And she currently serves as National Press Secretary for the Human Rights Campaign.

Sarah is doing great work and is a wonderful role model.

That is why we sent her this letter with more than 375 signatures from moms who are in my private Facebook group.

Dear Sarah,

We are part of a large private Facebook group of more than 1,200 moms of LGBTQ kids.

Our group, Serendipitydodah for Moms, was created especially for open minded Christian moms of LGBTQ kids who want to develop and maintain healthy, loving, authentic relationships with their LGBTQ kids.

More than 375 of us are signing this letter because we want to say thank you for the work you are doing and for being such an excellent role model. Your commitment to work for equality, inclusion and protection of LGBTQ people gives all of us so much hope for our children’s future.

We are very encouraged by all you are doing and accomplishing; and want you to know we are praying God will protect, strengthen, guide and bless you.

We believe people like you reflect the true spirit of America.

We are forever hopeful others will hear your voice and be inspired to follow your just and compassionate example.

With sincere admiration and gratitude,
