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

  1. I always get so much joy when I see that you've posted! Your son sounds absolutely amazing. And you are an amazing parent for being so accepting about this. He's so lucky to have you for a mother. Bless you both.


  2. Thanks so don't know how much that means to me!!

  3. His father hasn't accepted him as transgender?

  4. He and his family still refer to Kennedy as a she...and don't believe there is such thing as transgender....Kennedy will only allow them to do this. If a stranger or anyone else were to he will, he quickly snaps back I am a Boy!! I asked him why he dosn't tell his father grandparents that? He said it makes them sad, and I love them so I guess its ok for now...maybe they will change their mind someday.

  5. Ugh... no such thing. When are people going to understand that who you are is a matter of how your brain was formed and not your private parts? Do they have religious reasons for this or are they just not educated in the matter?

  6. Both ...and Thanks for the support and our private chat!!
