Sunday is Bring Your Gay Teen to Church Day in Houston

HOUSTON -- Ebie Hussey's first reaction when her son announced that he is gay was to offer unconditional love.
Finding a new church was a close second.

"His first question was, 'Am I going to hell?' " Hussey said of that conversation with her son, Jaxn. "Mainstream Christianity and fundamental Christianity really pushes that homosexuality is a sin, and he had caught on to that."

Jaxn, now 15, knew his parents didn't think that. "But I had always heard people saying that kind of thing," he said.

ADOPT ME! Bianca wants to ride in your car!

Well folks, you won't find a sweeter boxer out there than our Bianca.

This 7-year-old beauty is the most mellow, loving, gentle boxer girl we have met in a long time.

Bianca was dumped at the shelter by a family who just didn't care for her anymore. We cared (and then some!) and knew this special girl deserved a life of love and luxury.

Bianca is an angel. She is a big girl, weighing about 55 pounds. She has the most beautiful white coat and big amber doe-like eyes.

She is spayed and up-to-date with her shots.

Kylie is what we refer to as a “pocket boxer." Although everyone who meets her thinks she is still a pup, the 2-year-old Kylie is already full grown at a mere 40 pounds.

This girl is as cute as she is tiny; with a spirit and a will far greater than her stature.

Kylie was found nearly starved to death. Emaciated, dehydrated and battling a severe case of pneumonia, Kylie suffered unthinkable neglect, but fought her way back to health and is now a thriving, bouncy girl.

She has been spayed and is up-to-date with her shots.
