Nina

Nina has been going to a therapist near the college for 2 years as well. She asked us to come to therapy with this therapist last week, which we did. It's obvious to me that this therapist never challenged her on this path.

A Different Kind of Gender Dysphoria

I guess I was lucky that all of this started years ago. Today my son probably would have declared his transgender identity at an earlier age and might have requested surgery.

I’ve cried reading these letters and I can’t even imagine having my child taken from me.
