Joanna and Connor – the editors. Who are we?
Joanna and Connor are a mother and son, but in an unconventional way.
The two met years ago when Joanna was dating and then a friend of Connor’s dad, Tom. Joanna stayed in Tom and his kids’ lives over the years, and every now and then they would all get together.
As the years passed, Tom struggled with depression and alcoholism, but Joanna stayed in their lives during a period in which many of Tom’s friends turned away from him because of his behavior as an alcoholic. After Tom died, she felt further responsibility and affection with his kids, and the relationship between them grew stronger.
Since then, Joanna and Connor have grown closer and closer. Connor has a biological mother, and another emotional one in Joanna. They talk and chat, visit when they get the chance (living on opposite sides of California), attend important events in each other’s lives, and work together on GaysforJesus and other projects.
