I’m truly happy for this beautiful family and wonderful mother!

Hearing this story touched my heart and brought me tears. I’m personally transgender and known since around 4 years old. Growing up hiding who I am was truly painful each day. It caused depression and suicidal feelings from dealing with gender dysphoria. I grown up feeling alone like my parents and siblings wouldn’t understand and even felt like I should move away where I could be the girl in my heart and mind on the outside. I cared to much for my family and so I took a leap of faith and told my family. It was really really hard emotionally and it took time. Today I been on hormone treatments to transition to female for 8 months and my family has been getting around. I deeply needed my parents and what love I found. I’m a transgender christian living both worlds and found love for who I am. I’m happy living each day with that pain in the past becoming the woman that was always in my heart. I found a welcoming church that has many transgender children running around honestly tomorrow looks brighter each day. This story of this mother and daughter is simply beautiful. I just want to say thank you for a loving story that brought tears to my eyes. I wish I didn’t hid how I felt when I was 4 and this new generation is getting a better chance to live the memories that us transgender people of the past could never get. You are a wonderful mother and I can’t wait to share it with my mother. Thank you and god bless you and your family and your beautiful daughter!

Real and personal

This is an awesome podcast that helps listeners get in touch with what is really important about other people. Marlo brings you into her world, our world, unrehearsed and vulnerable. She expresses her doubts and anxiety about how to best help her daughter be who she is.

Marlo conveys a sense that it is about who you are, not what society wants you to be, is most important. As Marlo says, all the rest is BS.
