13-year-old Connor came out as gay to his parents and couldn't have wished for a better reaction, as it's not the easiest thing to admit - particularly to your parents

The note reads:

Dear Connor,

I am writing you this letter so you have something tangible, something to hold onto, if you should need it, to always remind you that we love you.

I am pretty proud that we have the kind of relationship in which you felt comfortable coming out to me at 13 yeards old. I am hoping that we have created an environment in our house in which you are loved, you are safe and that we will support you and fight for you.

Dad and I love you very much. You are growing into such an amazing young man. You are pure potential. We can't wait to see where it takes you!

Love, Mom.
