At 25 Years I Decided To Become A Female And It Was The Best Decision I’ve Ever Made

I’ve never imagined I’d go through the transition. I was 20 when I came out to my best friend and I just remember crying because I felt like it was too late, and the thought of being nonpassable in a small Texas town just wasn’t the route I wanted to take.

Every day kept getting harder, eventually, I took the leap at 25 and it was the best decision I’ve ever made! I never thought I could live my life… I continuously held myself back but I’ve learned anything is possible if you want it enough! I was able to adopt my 3 beautiful nieces and we’re on our way to living out the best life we can!

This is the most recent picture of me

I don't know for sure how I feel about the whole transgender issue. What I do know, for sure, is when I read and see the love, beauty and caring such as your story, it makes me feel so happy for you! Maybe some things shouldn't be an "issue". Such as "baby steps," one person at a time helps me understand.
