1st: T chose a new name and I formed everyone they need to use the she/her pronouns (she will now be referred to by R here on the blog). The name she chose was my grandmother’s name. She never knew my grandmother’s name!

Why did these things come at the perfect time you ask? R’s older brother outed her to a schoolmate today. R has been having some serious anxiety all day because of it. She decided that she wants the school to know. I will be meeting with a few staff members tomorrow. R will stay home with me and return on Wednesday.
We are starting to draft a letter to family and friends who do not know yet.
I think we are both ready for this!
