This is my first attempt at a blog. My name is Beverly and am 47 years old with 2 amazing children. At present, I have a 13 and 15 year old. My 13 year old has told me that he is trans. I live in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
I am starting this blog to help other parents and maybe get suggestions. This is a way that I can tell people what I am going through. I was bugging my son to start a blog to help other children and then I thought since he isn’t – I would.
It’s odd, looking back on the adventure we are on, I have learnt it is only a name. The child remains the same. This is a hard thing to remember. It’s amazing what we associate with a name.
It’s amazing after James came out, he wasn’t so sick. This goes to show you how stress can affect a person. The peeling of the hand and feet went away. Him sleeping 14 hours a day went away. Him feeling like he has no energy went away. He has always been a happy child but he is so much happier now.
Please forgive me if I make mistakes. This is all new to me and I am still learning.
I would like to thank my family, friends, and colleagues for their ongoing support. This means so much.
I look forward to the adventure…….and knowing my son.
