R is getting further along in her transition. She’s been referred to the endocrinologist (which is next week) and we are going to get the blood work & x-rays a few days before. Luckily all of the doctors we have needed to see have been at the same practice so R is already comfortable.

I know that Jenner spoke about helping the LGBTQ community during the interview last night. I am so glad Jenner did! the interview was done so amazingly well and my heart bursts with joy for Jenner and every other Trans* woma, man and child who will benefit from how eloquent and genuine Jenner was.
I knew that with Diane Sawyer being a part of this, it would be done with the utmost class and dignity. However, she exceeded my expectations. I don’t think she really should have asked Jenner about the SRS, BUT I also think that I need to keep in mind that not everyone knows what is appropriate or inappropriate.
I think that an important thing for the trans* and cis community to take away from this is that Jenner struggled for DECADES and even thought about suicide … Jenner didn’t go through with it though. Couldn’t go through with it.
I implore those in the trans* community to follow Jenner ‘ s lead and live to see another day.
I implore those in the cis community to have an epiphany … BRUCE JENNER, famous, an Olympic hero … almost committed suicide bc this was so tough, imagine how this process is for those who do not have fans. “We are going to change the world”- Bruce Jenner
R went back to church today (first time since affirming publicly) and Pastor was amazing. Didn’t make a big deal about any of it just treated her like he normally does *phew*.
I went out yesterday and bought her a dress (her 1st ever).
Just like her 🙂
R wore her skirt and Rainbow Dash shirt today 🙂
It went SO well that she feels comfortable wearing a skirt tomorrow :).
Another child came up to my boss (the breakfast and lunch aide) and asked how R got permission to do this bc she has been telling her parents for years that she’s not a girl, she’s a boy and they just won’t listen to her. Broke my heart.
One little girl was a little confused about the bathroom situation but R, the principal and the bullying specialist explained it well.
Again, this little girl is my HERO!
