Publisher's Summary

Transitions of the Heart is the first collection to ever invite mothers of transgender and gender variant children of all ages to tell their own stories about their child’s gender transition. Often transitioning socially and emotionally alongside their child but rarely given a voice in the experience, mothers hold the key to familial and societal understanding of gender difference. Sharing stories of love, struggle, and acceptance, this collection of mother's voices, representing a diversity of backgrounds and sexual orientations, affirms the experience of those who have raised and are currently raising transgender and gender variant children between the ages of five and fifty.

Edited by Rachel Pepper, a gender specialist and co-author of the acclaimed book The Transgender Child, Transitions of the Heart will prove an invaluable resource for parents coming to terms with a child’s gender variance or transition.

    I'm Audible's first Editor-at-Large, the host of In Bed with Susie Bright -- and a longtime author, editor, journo, and bookworm. I listen to audio when I'm cooking, playing cards, knitting, going to bed, waking up, driving, and putting other people's kids to bed! My favorite audiobooks, ever, are: "True Grit" and "The Dog of the South."

    "Heartfelt, Well-Written, and Moving"

    Mothers of transgender and gender variant children tell of their child's transition, and their own transitions that went with them. The universality of their challenges will touch anyone who's ever given their all to their kids--- and took the leap before before they understood the depth.

    These mothers come from all backgrounds, demographics, married, single, straight, gay, religious, non-religious— and all of them had to find their own path on the "transgender odyssey" that their child was on. Their experiences are unexpected and different. The common thread is love for their children, and wanting the best for them.
