It took me a while to be ok with it. I’ve always been different, I mean, look at my name, for goodness sake. It’s been a process, albeit a beautiful one. Hopefully I can instill in my children to be more than ok with it. I want them to celebrate their paths. I’ve had a lot of support, as well as a lot of naysayers (surprisingly from people I wouldn’t have expected), but each of them pushed me further and further on this path. I’m forever grateful for a loving God who cares for me enough to know better than I do. To gently nudge me here and there so that I can be who He’s designed me to be.
