by Shari Johnson

This book is Shari Johnson's personal story -from the night she received the call from her daughter, Cholene, that she way gay, through the the marriage of her daughter to her partner, Ellen Ratner, to the present where she is president of the PFLAG Odessa (Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays). This poignant story is sometimes humorous, sometimes tragic, but always honest.
Shari Johnson's world turned upside down the night her 37-year-old daughter called and told her that she was gay. This just couldn't be possible. Cholene had always been the hero-Air Force Academy graduate, second woman to fly the U-2 spy plane, captain for United Airlines - she cried, begged, pleaded with God to change Cholene, but he changed Shari instead. It seems that he was much more concerned about Shari's lack of love than he was about Cholene's homosexuality. This book is Shari's personal story.
