Trans in Ontario

The government is waiving the fee to change gender marker for the next year.  After that it will be $37.  Scroll to the section ‘cost and delivery’ for more information:

Canadian Paediatric Society

The Canadian Paediatric Society has confirmed what we already know to be true.
 
“Children do best when their parents or caregivers show them that they are loved and accepted for who they are.  Discouraging your child from expressing a gender can make them feel ashamed. Give them unconditional support.”
 
The document below was recently released by the Canadian Paediatric Society.  Please pass it along to anyone who may find it helpful.

Lucky

I started this blog for me. I think this was going to be my therapy. I was worried about my son and the situations that might happen.

Lucky? Am I or my son lucky because no real issues have happened?

His high school is accepting. He has a boyfriend for just over a year now. He lost no friends. He has gained new friends. This is not the path that was expecting. I am so happy this is the path he is on.

This goes to show, one day at a time. You cannot worry about tomorrow just the here and now.

The next chapter in his life will be finding a job (which he is excited for). A trip in November that is organized with two other schools (extra curricular). None of his friends are going but he doesn’t care. He is a strong independent young man.

Both of my sons have taught me so much. I have a feeling this won’t stop.

Thank you for reading this. I apologize that I don’t post on a regular basis.

Thoughts or comments welcomed.

Good Doctor

Ok the title of this is a bit misleading.

I just watched an episode of the Good Doctor which had a story line on a trans child. I strongly encourage you watch it. The episode aired on February 5th and is called She.

While watching this show, I went through so many emotions. I cried, got angry, heart ached etc.

Let me know what you think after you watch it.
