     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...

    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 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...
