I was just about to go to bed, but I need to do this...

So I just tweeted (twitted? twit? twat?) about this article I came across, but I want to share it on LJ as well, because I was so touched by these amazing parents.

Parents allow their 8 year old son to live as a girl

God bless these parents, who can recognize that their child feels different and put their child's needs above what society (and apparently, the Catholic Church) feel is "normal" in order to meet those needs. I can't imagine how hard it must be for a transgendered child to grow up. These parents are so brave and loving and amazing, and I hope that other parents will follow their example and encourage their children to live their lives in the way that will enable them to be their healthiest and happiest.

I know a lot of people in the world who read that will think that she'll have a hard life ahead of her, but they don't seem to realize how much harder it is for her to live a life as someone she's -not-. Either way, it'll be hard...but at least -this- way, she has the support of her parents. As a parent, I think that this is the way all parents -should- be.

I agree. This is amazing, for parents to really do what they can to make their child happy. That's love right there.
