Your story and the accompanying artwork are heartbreaking in some ways but life-affirming in others. Thank you for sharing something so personal. I hope your family members complete their grieving cycle and are able to love and embrace the true you — the one that was always there, hidden. I admire your courageous spirit. Hugs to all of you!
