I'm a single mom of a 7 year old and a 4 year old. I recently got a girlfriend. They've met her, but just as a friend. My mom says I'm selfish and we will have problems because of society and whatnot. I'm not as concerned with that; I'm just wondering how to explain to my girls (who have been raised in church) that mommy has a girlfriend..?Answer Question

Children understand love. Tell them that you have been given a special friend to love the way some mommys and daddys do. Also, you can get them some books from the library about children with gay/lesbian parents.
Congratulations on your new relationship.
