NOT BORN THIS WAY

12 Sep

I am sharing a beautiful article that tells another perspective on a personal narrative. As mothers, we can only ask our children how they view themselves. We can only lend support and hope they accept our love, forgive our awkwardness, and be patient with our process in accepting their transition.

Only a transgender individual can accurately determine what is authentic for them. This article shares the truth for Kai Cheng Thom. I hope you will take the time to read and thoughtfully consider.

    I think it is good to read something that varies from the traditional narrative. I grew up hearing Christian testimonies that always had the part of the horrible sins the person committed before “being saved”. I never felt like I could share my testimony because it didn’t fit the template.

      I agree, ‘Crackedharper”- I think the more we open ourselves up to just consider different narratives, the more able we are to accept!!
