They said, “it’s a boy”, but they lied. Experience the transition from male to female from a parent’s point of view.
Note to readers: n.c.i. = name choice intended (there is still some back and forth between George and Jessie) and g.c.i. = gender choice intended (see n.c.i. for explanation). David and Robbie are my much older and far less fabulous brothers whom I love with all my heart and Rich, Jessie and Harrison are my husband and kids whom I couldn’t possibly love any more.
There is no room for judgment, criticism or hate on this blog. Words of support, caring and love can be posted here or sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Every single one will be read. I promise.
Also, I have tried like hell to figure out a way to put a link on the home page with a “start here” button which would take you to the beginning of this blog which will, in turn, lend better perspective to the whole wild ride, but have not been able to figure it out and have decided that I am a better writer than I am a technical person. We can’t all be good at everything, now can we? (What really irks me about this is that I, at one point, managed to figure out how to post the “Home” and “About” links but am now a moron and cannot replicate that process…)
So, start at the beginning!
