Celebrating Trans Parents Day!
When I began my gender transition eleven years ago, the doctors told me that I should freeze my eggs if I ever wanted to have biological children. I did not freeze any of my eggs because at the time, the option was not financially accessible for me. But you see, I’m someone who has always…Read More

This means one person’s experiences should never be the go-to narrative for an entire community. This also means that if you…Read More
Let’s Talk About Letting Go
One of the hardest things that I’ve learned over the last ten years while trying to get (but really, stay) sober, is the ability to let go. Sometimes this means letting go of control over how other people drive, sometimes this means letting go of people and relationships that I may not yet be ready…Read More
Are They a Boy or a Girl?!
The most common thing that I get asked is how do I answer the question, “are they a boy or a girl?!” As a parent practicing gender creative parenting, this is how that usually goes. But, I want to preface by saying that Wilder is being raised during a pandemic, is unable to get vaccinated…Read More
