10-year-old Sophia now has an unlikely pen pal in Barack Obama. Sophia wrote the following to the President:

“I am so glad that you agree two men can love each other because I have two dads and they love each other, but at school kids think that it’s gross and weird, but it really hurts my heart and feelings…”

The Commander-in-Chief answered her letter with one of his own, offering a few kind words of encouragement and support:

“In America, no two families look the same. We celebrate this diversity. And we recognize that whether you have two dads or one mom what matters above all is the love we show one another. You are very fortunate to have two parents who care deeply for you. They are lucky to have such an exceptional daughter in you.”

If he isn’t re-elected President, can we at least vote for Barack Obama to be our dad?
