An agreement between a lesbian mother and her two teenage daughters may reunite them after the girls ran away from home in protest of their mother's sexual orientation. Kimla Green and her daughters, 17-year-old La Kenna and 16-year-old Shanicola, went into a family courtroom in Houston on Monday because the two teens had asked a judge to declare them independent following objections they had to their mother's sexual orientation.
In their petition to sue their mother for "divorce," the girls allege that their mother brought girlfriends home for overnight visits and tried to restrict their religious schooling when the daughters' beliefs caused them to question how their mother was living her life.
Under the deal, La Kenna and Shanicola will once again live with their mother as long as she doesn't "do anything" in front of the girls. In exchange, the girls will no longer attend the Body of Christ Ministry in southeast Houston, which Green said had brainwashed her daughters into thinking her sexual orientation wasn't right. The deal still needs to be approved by a judge in Fort Bend County, where the case was transferred. A hearing is scheduled for August 28.
