Paul & kathleen poche
Paul and Kathleen live in Southwest Louisiana, have been married for 51 years, and have three adult children. Paul is retired from the LP Gas industry, and Kathleen retired as an executive assistant on staff at a conservative ministry. Having experienced many miscarriages, Kathleen prayed, "God, I would rather know the pain of not having children than to experience the pain of a child who didn’t know and love you." When their adult son confided in them that he was gay, they spent several years in fear and denial. When a wedding date was set, they reached out to Embracing the Journey and connected for the first time with parents who were on a similar journey and understood their love for their son and their love for God. Today they enjoy an excellent relationship with all of their children and thank God for opening their eyes and heart to love the way God loves.
