A beautiful photo spread of the family of a young transgender child, accompanied by her mother’s description of the family’s joy in supporting their child.
“Sometimes it’s the ordinary moments that are the most extraordinary. Last week I travelled to Washington, D.C. and spent a rainy afternoon with Vanessa, JR, Ronnie, and Ellie. Their home is warm and loving, humming with the lovely chaos that comes with a couple of young kiddos. Wall climbing, bed jumping, playing, running, fighting, laughing, loving. Really, it’s just like any other young family’s home, but when you look a little closer you might notice signs of the transition this family has been going through together. Names and pictures that reflect past more than present, as the youngest member of this household has made it very clear who she really is.”
