The greatest blessing a family can obtain is a child. There are those lucky ones that obtain the gifts in doubles or triplets for others depending on God’s grace upon you. Twins was the portion of the skinner family, Ashton and Sammy. Just like any father does on that very day he visualized on the women his daughters would become. The numbers of bys who would come knocking at his door step and may be one lucky lad could see him dance with them in their white gowns. The story just unfolds as they expected until the girls graduated from high school.
Education enriches one with the power to make decisions. Sammy decides to live the expected life but Ashton surprises with the transgender path she took. It all begun with the books that filled the e-library of the family, her dress code followed and her hair cut added up. Ashton had some external influence from college what parents may refer to as peer pressure. It was that Trans woman in college that ignited the urge for Ashton to appear like she desired. Ashton goes the extra mile of consulting a therapist in order for her to tell this to her family when she is in a better position.
Ashton finally lets the cat out of the bag; their parents had already foreseen this it was just a confirmation time. They promise to support him and display the unconditional parent love even at the worst of situation. Their only challenge was that the shift in pronoun used to refer Ashton would take time to shift. It was understandable but they feared for him in the world outside because not everybody would embrace transgender. Ashton faced the humiliation several times at washroom where he would be asked to walk out. But the moment he will never forget was at the airport where a male guard inspects him and the female one shout that she was female. For Ashton she has adapted to the life.
