"I'm so glad you agree that two men can love each other, but at school kids think that's gross and weird," News.com.au quoted her as writing in the letter.

"It really hurts my feelings so I came to you because you are my hero.

"If you were me and you had two dads that loved each other and kids at school teased you about it, what would you do?" she said.

The letter ends with Klugh wishing Obama well for the election, and asked him to say hello to his daughters.

Obama replied back to the letter, writing, "Thank you for writing me such a thoughtful letter about your family. Reading it made me proud to be your president.

"In America, no two families look the same. We celebrate this diversity.

"A good rule is to treat others the way you hope they will treat you. Remind your friends at school about this rule if they say something that hurts your feelings," he wrote. (ANI)
