Transgender: Son to Daughter


After 12 years of living in joyful connection with our gender creative firstborn child, Sky has transitioned to female expression and pronouns (she/her). This means she is transgender.

She is the same beautiful, kind, clever, fun, and happy kid who we continue to love, accept, and support. We will be honoring this diversity and affirming her gender identity as we move into this new season of adolescence.

If you would like to better understand our story, you are welcome to follow along as I share my sometimes-messy journey walking this path in love.

I invite you to learn more about gender diversity in general below with some resources that have helped us along.
