Larry and I attended the THEA+ event today. It was wonderful to see so many great people all gathering together to share information, resources, and support for one another and for friends and family whose lives are touched by issues associated with gender variance. I was especially touched by the many parents of transgender youth who shared their experiences, hopes, and fears. You are all amazing, and you epitomize what being truly great parents is all about - loving your children no matter what and putting their well-being above all else. I am honored to have met so many of you!
We had such a wonderful time last night and today. It was great to meet so many people...especially so many of you that I have talked to on the PoTC board! All of the sessions were fabulous; I could have listened to most of the speakers all night. The best part though, of course for me, was seeing my son Drew's face when my husband/Drew's dad showed up. (Jason had been, for the most part, unsupportive...so this was HUGE!) Jason stayed for all the sessions, and I hope he learned a lot! THANKS to Lisa and Blake, for a wonderful first year...Can't wait for next year!
