The other day we were on the phone and she told me how she had seen the Danish Girl and felt so bad for the main character Lili Elbe and was so glad her wife supported her. This kind of reaction would not have been possible from her some years ago but with me being transgender and hearing more about my life has really opened her mind to the subject.
As I ponder where to go from here with my life it is nice to hear those positive statements that only make it easier to remove the stigma I have felt so long over being transgender. She proves that people can grow and learn at any age.
I wouldn't require that my mother ever accept me as her daughter just that she accepts me as I am which is more than enough for me.
