Every year during the holidays we adopt a needy child through my work and we buy her/him the things s/he wants most. Of course, this year I selected Jonah, age 5, who wanted Justin Beiber’s holiday album, Under the Mistletoe. C.J. loves that he shares a love of the Beibs with Jonah. He wanted to meet him and listen to the c.d. together. Maybe next year.

FYI, C.J. is still working on his Christmas list. It’s two full pages long. Single spaced. His brother’s list is half a page long. C.J. is holding out hope that he will get everything on his list. This should be interesting.

I have a question for you: What books do you read and enjoy that are about growing up LGBTQ and/or parenting a gay child? I just might want to expand my library (and learn from other people’s mistakes). Let me know if you have any suggestions.
I caught C.J. singing in the bath. Without further ado….Here is C.J. covering his favorite holiday song, Wham’s “Last Christmas.” (Click the arrow on the player below.)
