Every parent’s deepest wish is to see their child happy and healthy. And to make that wish a reality, some have to sacrifice their own visions of their child’s future to make way for what their child wants.
That’s exactly what one Australian mom did when her son told her over and over again that he wanted to be a girl. By the time he was 12, he so desired to change his gender that he felt suicidal in his own skin. His mother had to act: she had to help him transition.
Two years after the transition began though, everything changed once again for the family and the mother doing all she could to make her child happy. One confession shifted her reality once again. And, this time, neither she nor her child ever saw it coming.
