This is the first collection to invite mothers of transgender and gender variant children to tell their own stories. Often »transitioning« socially and emotionally alongside their children, parents have their own parallel process to work through, and few resources to depend on. The editor has gathered voices of women from all walks of life, with children ranging in age from six to sixty, to share their experiences. These mothers have learned how to advocate for their children and themselves. By speaking out here, they are blazing a brave trail for others to follow. Whether you are a parent, educator, health-care professional, or just generally interested, be prepared for these stories to change your heart.
