He completed his transition recently and a few months ago I saw a picture where he was smiling for the first time ever that I had seen. thank you for sharing your stories. I know not a question, but both of your stories are so important for kids like him. Thank you so much for sharing. I do my best as an ally and I appreciate you both. So happy you found happiness in the end.'
