Transgender Little Boy Makes Leap to Life as a Girl

(ChattahBox)—A couple in Omaha, Nebraska are not shying away from the fact that their 8-year-old son is transgender. Their vivacious and engaging second-grader will be starting third grade in a different school next fall, as a girl with a new female name and a shiny blond ponytail tied in a ribbon.

The little boy has always attended a private Catholic school, but he is not welcome to attend school there as a girl and his parents were forced to switch to a public school. But it will be worth it, because their son who was born feeling trapped in the wrong body from practically the moment he was entered this world, will no longer have to hide his true identity and will be given the chance to live life as a girl.
