Gay what? Don’t tell me such things this is not my dream for you. Rage and anger consumed me and my dreams for this boy child got me angry that he will be living a life of stigma and discrimination. I felt so angry as if I had done something wrong and I was being punished. Yet I realized that if I didn’t support my child who will. The world was already full of haters that would want to subject my child to cruel words and I had to step up and he the parent regardless of my child’s sexual orientation. Yet when child come out trans it was easier as my love for my child never changed. I carried her for 9 months and loved her growing up and continue to love and support her till today.
