Meet my son, Tom. We've been dealing this for about six months now. I've kept it pretty quiet for his privacy. We go to #PFLAG
meetings and he's got some emotional help with both medication and a therapist. My husband and I both saw a grief counselor for a while also. 💙
It's hard letting our only daughter, Milt's only child, go. His old name, which we chose so carefully and with so much love is "dead" now. Sad, but also exciting for him to start high school feeling more comfortable with himself. 💙 While Chance was in the hospital I decided it doesn't matter, as long as Tom is happy and healthy. 💙 In the wise words of #DrPhil
, "This ain't the Brady Bunch." This is real life.
