John, this may be presumptuous on my part, but from my heart, thank you for being the loving parent…
Allison Washington

Thanks Allison! I am definitely a loving parent of a trans person… and loving friend of several other trans people. Seems it just got dropped on us (my wife and I) to be the people in this little south Georgia town that draw the folks that don’t fit in our rural, narrow demographic! But we have fully embraced it and are such the better people for it! I have shared your story on my blog, so hope you get more readership — wondered if you realize your story is, in part, a real-life version of the character Nomie on Sense8, the Netflix series…. anyway, go for the book! The world needs to hear your story! Much love and appreciation (and tears…!).
