One family’s values Bill Saltonstill, a private man, writes ‘The Letter’ that embraces his daughter and rejects the GOP
“In what he calls the most difficult letter he has ever written, Saltonstall stated: ‘I have a lesbian daughter who, with her partner, has adopted three children into a loving family. The national leadership of the Republican Party takes the position that no gay people should adopt children, and, if they do, the child might be taken away from them to be placed elsewhere.
‘I regard this as a direct attack on my family. My daughter wants to keep these children. They are my grandchildren, and I want to keep them. While I will continue to support local Republicans, as long as the Republican national leadership feels this way, I cannot support it.”
