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.

Their story is touching.
