Thanks so much for this article. It covers the depth of our emotions as mothers of trans-children.
As I was cleaning my son's room last night and found some of his personal objects, I cried, sat down to cry. For the first time, I allowed myself to grieve his life as a daughter. I didn't know how to do it. I didn't know how to explain my feelings.
When he told me that he was transitioning, I was in the process of learning how to dispense hormone therapy. I am a trained physician. I haven't picked it up yet. I will eventually.
Thanks for offering this space -
