This story is a mother's account of her emotional choice to embrace her transgender child. After they discovered their daughter Ryland was deaf and needed cochlear implants, the Whittingtons spent years teaching Ryland to speak. But once Ryland gained the power of speech, Ryland insisted, »I am a boy!" After learning that 41 percent of people who identify as transgender attempt to take their own lives, Hillary and her husband made it their mission to support their child - no matter what. From the earliest stages of deciphering Ryland to examining conversations that have marked every stage of Ryland's transition, Hillary shares her experiences as a mother through it all, demonstrating both the resistance and support that their family has encountered as they try to erase the stigma surrounding the word »transgender«.
