Transgender Child to Live As Girl

Mother Stands by Her Transgender Child

The responsibility of raising a child to be a contributing member of society can be enough pressure to drive a mother crazy. Add illness, divorce, other traumatic events or life's natural happenings and parents may reach their limits much earlier.

One Omaha mother is determined to put her eight-year-old child's needs first as he is certain he is a girl trapped in a boy's body. Putting his happiness, self-awareness and desires as the priority and ignoring society's gender stereotypes, she and her husband are doing everything in their power to make the transgender child's life as normal as possible. Their story is touching.
