    I Never Thought That I Would Be Mother Of The Bride

     Well, I went out to the kitchen with the best intentions in the world of baking some biscuits to take with me on the round of calls I am planning to make this afternoon.  I made a start, truly I did but I was thinking about Miranda and Al so much that I couldn't...

    Hmmmmmm........

    ......I am reminded, a little uncomfortably, I might add, of the story I wrote a while back in the "I am estranged from family members" group, where I expressed my satisfaction that my brother had made a stand for me at last when he went to visit my mother a short time...

    I Knew It...

    My oldest, child, on paper at birth was female. At the age of 13 he realized that he was a boy. Everyone was shocked. Except me. I didn't consciously know that my oldest was a boy, but I was not at all surprised when I found out. I always said when I was pregnant that i was...

    I Received A Letter This Morning

    from Miranda's father, my ex husband John. I don't know how long it would have been in that mailbox, which only ever receives junk mail, everyone else knows I don't use that one any more. But he's been trying to get in touch with me all week on my mobile phone, which hardly ever...

    My 14 year old announced last week

    that she has not felt like anything but herself not a gender but when she does it is weeks of feeling like she is male. I can't even begin to understand it but want to support her, she announced that she would like to be a male. I have already spoke with the school and they...

    Lucky you! I had a very feminine daughter

    for 25 years who has now been trans for 2 years Parents position seems very unimportant but this has turned my life upside down as automatic acceptance seems to be expected Love my child beyond my life but there is no realisation of the loss! Love always but will never call her...

    I Think About It A Lot..........

     ........and I used to get very depressed about it. When Miranda first told me that she had started taking the transforming hormones, it was probably about three months until I was able to tell anyone at work.  My Team Leader found me alone out in the tea room one day...

    I Don't Feel Like A Very Good "mother" Sometimes.....t

    In fact, I am hardly one at all sometimes. When Miranda and Al had their engagement party about 4 weeks ago, it was the housemate's mother who brought the mower round and mowed the grass for them.  It was this same woman, not me, who took MIranda shopping and bought her...
