On Nov. 1, five days before the election, President Barack Obama wrote to 10-year-old Sophia Bailey Klugh, who had sent a note thanking him for his support of gay marriage, according to The Huffington Post. Sophia wrote 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."
Obama responded: "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."
