Crossing Genders

Epitome of Femininity

by Anne Smith

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
This book was originally written to share with other parents of transgender children our journey as a family of what we experienced while my child transitioned from boy to girl at such a young age. It was ideally written to let you know that you are not alone in this experience and hopefully you will find some joy along the way as well. Many sections will carry you on the journey with us from the beginning of the transition through the next ten years and everything in between. It shares stories, inner thoughts, struggles, triumphs, perspectives and family dynamics involving the transformation. A parent's perspective is somewhat different from the transgender child's or any other member of the family, so I hope it helps you understand the insight of a family who has traveled down this path together and has come out the other side smiling even bigger than before. Your heart may fill with the emotional aspect of a parent's love and support that is so clearly needed when raising a transgender child. I have laid out the details from the very beginnings of our journey and documented major milestones along the way to paint a clear picture of how we handled the transformation with our child from little boy to little girl. Events have all impacted our decision for each and every detail we handled with regards to raising a transgender child, past, present and future. Join us on this journey and enjoy the ride of this thing we call "life".
