A few months ago, I joked with my friends that there should be a social network that connects parents with empty nest syndrome and orphans.
Your Holiday Mom is not quite that thing, but it’s a really uplifting site that I’m glad I started following this winter. It features sweet holiday letters from parents around the world, addressed to LGBTQ kids and adults who don’t have the love and support of their birth parents. Subscribing to YHM is like having Burt Hummel emailing you every day through the holidays.
YHM also has a Tumblr, which reblogs the posts from the site and also replies to fanmail that will make you cry just as much as the letters do.
The content of the letters varies, but you don’t have to be an orphan or LGBTQ youth to get the warm and fuzzies while reading them. If you need a pick-me-up or a good cry, head over to Your Holiday Mom to see parenting done right.
