My younger sibling just talked to me last night and told me they are transgender and relates more as a woman now than a man having been taking hormones for the last few months.

I am open and accepting and loving….
And at the same time want to wrap my mind around ways I can think about and process this.

The younger brother I once had is being replaced by a younger sister? Do I grieve the loss of the brother and get to know the new sister? Or do I look at things as if he’s still there, he just changed to a girl now?

Then also, how do I show up for the rest of my family? Especially my mom who has a much more religious, traditional view of the world and who I’m thinking probably isn’t taking this well.

Thank you!
