"A Mother's Love"

Every Mother/parent who see their child as being odd or different, because they play with object that are intended for another sex should read Kim Pearson's article "A Mother's Love" An Interview With Kim Pearson, Executive Director Trans Youth Family Allies, Inc., by Jim Koury in "Diversity Rules". What a great example of loving one's child, regardless.

As our PFLAG membership and attendance has grown, we have had several young people come to the meetings who have identified as trans; it is hardest on the parents who are trying to make sense of what their child is going through. One of PFLAG's purpose's is to educate the public and advocate for understanding of the issues lgbt children, youth, adults must negotiate in their struggle to survive and just live the live's they see for themselves.
