Parenting Essentials: Parenting Transgender Children
Mimi Lemay is a mother to three wonderful children, one of whom is her son Jacob. Before he chose his name at age four, Jacob was called M and allowed his family to use the pronoun she to refer to him. But from the time M could talk, she insisted that she was a boy. Mimi’s memoir, “What We Will Become”, chronicles her family’s courageous and emotional journey to recognizing and accepting Jacob’s identity and his desire to live as an affirmed boy.
