When you commit to having children, you commit to showing them unconditional love. You are happy to see them achieve, you help them back up when they fall, and you support them through their struggles. On October 23rd, 1996, I brought home my baby girl. Fast forward 21 years, and my baby girl is now my son. Having a child who transitions from one gender to another is, on one hand, a traumatic loss for a parent. More importantly, though, it is a substantial gain for your child.
This blog intends to share our separate journeys through a gender transition and bridge the gap of communication between a parent and child as we endure a massive change in our lives.
We encourage questions and constructive comments, and we wholeheartedly wish to help others who find themselves in the same situation.
