For My Mom

Thank you for raising me to be strong enough to face the world 

and then for standing by my side while I stand up for myself. 

I know how hard it can be to relive our experiences of my transition in front of an audience,

but I have seen the impact that your process has had on others, 

watching you change has changed people. 

beside me, 

your transformation is just as remarkable as mine. 

 

I don't care about the mistakes we've made 

I care that we decided to learn from them

    Watched Real Boy last night. Just happened to turn on Independent Lens while flipping channels. So glad I saw it!! Thank you for sharing your story. Much love to your mom for allowing the camera to see everything, good and bad. I was very happy to see her growth into a place of acceptance.
