“We assumed this was a phase,” Renee A. Yawn shared her story as a mom to a transgender son at last year’s LTYM: Atlanta. She paints a revealing picture of raising a very unhappy child and later piecing their family back together as her daughter decided to transition to her son. She didn’t want to accept it at first, “I was afraid that the life she was ‘choosing’ to live was going to be a long way from what I had envisioned for her.” But then she realized that it wasn’t about her. “I discovered that he was the child I raised, just in a different package.”
