Hello! Welcome to -just.plain.beth-
Have you recently discovered that your child is transgender and feel overwhelmed with all there is to know and learn about what that means? Do you want to support your child in a way that is loving and affirming while still processing your own emotions, but you aren’t sure where to start? Do you know someone that is transgender and want to learn how to support him or her and their family well? Well, you came to the right place.
Through sharing my stories and experiences I hope to encourage you as you process your grief and confusion (both normal reactions, because let’s face it, it’s a lot to go through) so that you can accept your child’s new gender identity and adjust to your new family configuration.
Occasional topics include self-care, mental health, and organization (which is how I deal with big emotions and anxiety).
I’m a forty-something mother of two, who has been married to my best friend since 1995. We live in southwestern New Hampshire with our energetic Husky and bossy old cat. I’ve been blogging in one form or another since 2005. I currently work part-time at a local church while I finish a master’s degree in English and Creative Writing.
