Sharing Moments: A Christmas Village Embraces Differences

Look closely then keep reading! 
Sometimes it's the small things that mean the most to our kids. One of the mom's from our support group shares this heartwarming moment with us. Do you have something touching you'd like to share, let us know. Meanwhile, Happy Holidays!

While setting up our holiday village, my 14 year old son Daniel walked by and pointed to one of the girl figurines and said, "See that girl? She's transgender."  

"She is?"  I asked.

"Yes, she is for sure," my son said. 

The next day, when I came home from the store, he had made a sign for her that read, "Transgender and Proud." He taped it to a toothpick and put it in her hands. She now proudly stands next to one of the homes in our little town and I'm so happy to know that I have an inclusive holiday village!

Merry Christmas!
