Gay uncle makes baby nephew a handmade blanket, parents refuse the gift.
A few months ago, I began making a baby blanket for my nephew Gage whom I’ve seen 2 times since his birth. Yesterday after spending multiple hours sewing, tacking and binding; the quilt was finally finished. I then washed the quilt by hand, dried, and then ironed it. After making sure it was as perfect as I could make it, I folded it and wrapped it with a pretty gold bow. Today, I was informed via my mother that my brother and his wife have refused to accept the baby blanket. Their reasoning for this was that my “gay spirit” might somehow transfer from myself into the quilt and thereby infect their child, making him gay. I don’t fault them for their beliefs and I don’t hold anything against them for the way they feel about me. I’ve done all I can to be as loving as possible to those around me, and that’s all I can do. I still love each of them whether they love me back or not. So, here’s is the thing; I now have a hand-made, personalized baby blanket, made by a gay man with lots of love sewn into every stitch, but I don’t have anyone to give it to. I picked out the fabrics myself and made it extra fluffy so that it’s super warm and cozy. The center block says Gage in chocolate brown embroidery. If you have a child named Gage, or know of someone with a child named Gage that is in need of a fluffy, soft, cuddly baby blanket and will accept it from a gay man, please comment below or send me a private message and I will send it to you free of charge. I hope you enjoy it just as much as I did making it.
