Please don't forget to read my first post "MEET KENNEDY" it will give you his story from the begining , It's where you get a glimpse of how we both got to this point in our lives. To a transitioned child...... and as a mother to my daughter to a mother to my son. From an upset misunderstood child to a happy robust boy ready to embrace the world!!

Thank you

Does Santa Know??

So Kennedy wrote Santa a letter like many kids his age do. All about what he wants for Christmas but Kennedy also added that he "thanks him a lot for all his hard work" He also added at the bottom love Kennedy....a boy!
I guess he wanted to make sure Santa knew he was a boy, I asked him about that and he said "well I just want to make sure he doesn't have me down on his list as a girl....I would get a bunch of stuff I don't want" I told him OK, sounds like a good idea Sweets. I'm glad he was thankful for all of Santa's services..hehe and it brings to light how he worries about being mistaken for a girl.
About a month ago Kennedy came to me and said "mom I'm afraid of finding a wife someday" I asked why and he said "because when she finds out how I'm not like a regular boy and stuff she will say eeewww and your gross and get away from me" I let him know that someone will love him just as much as I do someday. He said "are you sure..." I reassured him that he will be loved and accepted as he is and that it will be okay...I just hope I'm right!!
One more thing he also told me when I asked what kind of wife do you think you want sweety he said "a really hot one, pretty you know, and one that is respectful, she will help someone out if they are hurt or needs help" Okay that is that a great kid or what!! And no he pronunced respectful, I love him so much!
Thanks for listening!


  1. Please tell Kennedy that a woman will love him for who he is, a man, someday! I am a cis gender woman dating a wonderful trans man and I could not be happier!

  2. Thanks so much that is encouraging!!

  3. That breaks my heart that he worries about being mistaken for a girl, but it makes me smile to think of the way he handles it... complete clarity for the old dude in red. What a sweet little guy you have!

  4. As a gay, as in gay male, FTM teen, I feel that there is no shortage of people who will love and accept your son for who he is.

    I'm in a wonderful relationship with a boy who cares very deeply for me, although he knows that I am a boy with a vagina, and a girl who wants a penis.

    Kennedy will find a wife that loves him for who he is, I can assure both of you of that.


Tell me how you feel...but Please be respectfull this is a very personal site thank you!
