Last night my former son-in-law Phill,
So I figure I'll just turn the rest of this post over to my daughter-in-law Callie by sharing the coming out announcement she posted last night on Facebook.
Coming Out As Transgender
Hello all. I just thought you would all like to know: I am coming out to the world as transgender. This has been in the works for quite a long time, and I really couldn’t be happier. I revealed myself to Theresa, my best friend and love of my life January of 2015. I started coming out to my and her family the following spring, and they all have been amazing, wonderful, and so incredibly loving and supportive, even as they come to terms with this news themselves. I came out to leadership at work last January, a process that has been incredibly smooth, professional, welcoming and a testament to the unity of my coworkers and the leadership of management. I started hormone therapy last March, introducing me to a happiness and contentedness that I have never known. And just last month, I began living authentically in (almost) all aspects of my life, having come out to my colleagues at work. It has been a long hard road, and it’s a road that really has no end. Today, I wanted to share these steps with everyone, so that I may be my whole self with all of you as well.
I would love and appreciate your support, but I really only ask for your respect.
If you would like to reach out or ask something, please feel free – I would love to chat.
I am still me; just a much better, happier, more confident me. And I can’t wait to share my life with everyone.
From your mouth to God's ears, dear Callie.
