A grandfather is being praised on social media for writing an inspiring letter to his daughter after she disowns his gay grandson.
The letter was posted on Facebook by a gay rights group. FOX 29 doesn't know the name of the man who wrote it, but many people on social media are calling this guy the "grandfather of the year."
While the details surrounding the incident are not clear, what's clear is that the grandfather has this to say to his daughter:
"Kicking Chad out of your home simply because he told you he was gay is the real 'abomination' here. -- a parent disowning her child is what goes 'against nature.'"
He goes on to tell his daughter that his grandson was born this way and didn't choose to be gay anymore than he chose to be left handed.
The grandfather ends the letter by simply telling his daughter, "If you find your heart, give us a call."
