From Left to Right: Niklas, age twelve, going into 6th grade; Liam, Kristal's twin, who, along with his twin sister, is going into the fifth grade; and Kristal, my transgender daughter who is publicly out and incredibly brave
. My kiddos love to help at the shop and they earn straight A's and B's in school. Niklas loves golf, soccer, basketball, as well as gaming, guitar, journaling, photography, cooking, Star Wars, army men, Legos, Pokemon, Bey Blades, and more! Liam likes all of those things as well except not the guitar nor photography. He proudly powers through anxiety daily, serving as an example to not be ashamed of himself. He is intuitive beyond his years. Kristal loves everything gaming related and all things girly from rainbows and unicorns to her art, dolls, and more! She plays the cello and piano both as well as runs cross country & track. She has enjoyed gymnastics in the past and is currently seeking to play volleyball with her school. She is also beginning a dream of a career in acting. She loves Jazz Jennings and hopes to follow in her footsteps as an activist. To start that journey, she recently signed to become a Lil Champion with GenderCool, a national organization whose mission centers the voice of trans kids and teens.
All of my children are my heroes. Each is amazing in their own right.
