Hello! I am a proud parent of a transgender woman. She is 21 and has just moved home after a few years of living away. This is all new for us, so I am here to learn and support her in every way possible.

Laura, welcome. Good on you for doing what you do. We need more parents like you!
I'm glad you're joining our family. I'm sure you're a good parent. And your daughter is very lucky to have you as her parents. Because we all know that a lot of transgender people actually seek the support of their parents when they plan to become transgender. But many parents will say that they do not understand or even think that there is something wrong with their children. In fact, this is very bad for their physical and mental health. So your daughter is lucky to have you as her parents.
My parents are just like you. They love me very much and will support me no matter what decision I make. When I told them I was transgender, they looked upset. They think I must have suffered a great grievance, and they feel sorry for me. And I'm very lucky to have them. Because of them, I can be who I want to be.
Now I live a happy life, I am brave to be myself with the support of my parents. I also have a boyfriend who loves me very much. We met on a transgender dating app, but we're happy. I'm going to take my boyfriend home to visit my parents for Thanksgiving. I'm sure they'll love him too.
As a parent, and having kids on the spectrum, and having unsupportive parents myself. All I can say is thank you, it will be hard at times and best to talk to her, alot, be the mother she will always want in her life. Many many of us are alone and still need parents who disowned us.
