I’m here late in hotel room in NorCal’s Santa Clara, so far from my SoCal’s San Diego home.

I was planning this trip long before I planned to go to Sacramento — It’s a special day for the young, tran woman I’ve mentored for a number of years. April* offically becomes April today — today she legally changes her name to reflect her female identity.

I’ve known April for three years. Frankly, I’m excited for her, and I’m glad I get to share this wonderful day with her. It truly is a very special day in her life that she’ll remember forever; I’ll remember it forever as her “trans=Mom.” :)

So, dear  blenders, think some warm thoughts for April today, and I’ll let her know you’re thinking of her. :)


* I’m not using April’s real first name to protect her privacy.
