She is exactly as she should be for she is herself, and I love her for all that she is.

This closing line is truly powerful.

I admire the strength of the empowerment you’re bringing up here: she is not different, she is not better, she is not worse… she is her own self.

And you, as any great parent should, love her unconditionally for who she is, rather than lamenting or falling into the pit of patronising people “that don’t understand.”

Thanks for a great read and a great lesson.
