Not everyone is fortunate enough to have parents stand behind a child that throws the parents away and to return at the precise moment that the parents’ help is imperative.
One Sunday I went home for dinner. It was customary that I came for dinner at least monthly. This visit I walked smugly into the living room to announce that I was moving out of state to undergo sex reassignment surgery. The woman they assumed was my roommate was really my fiancé. I knew they were not going to be with me on my choice. I did not plan on trying to cushion the news in any way. It is safe to say my news was received the way I expected, however I was surprised by the lack of any conversation. Mom walked out of the room. Dad picked up the newspaper to finish reading it. I made the decision to walk out of their house and not look back.
Changing my gender did not fix me. It did not bring me the happiness I believed it would. My world fell apart. I fell apart. Surprisingly, my parents stepped back into my life. They picked back up like I had never hurt them. I was shocked, amazed, but most of all, extremely grateful. I cannot imagine how I would have ever gotten through without them. Not just through it but thrived. Their unconditional love is what every child should experience. MJM Ministry is born out of love from a child for their parents.
