    I wanted to let you know that after I read my first Alice diary a few weeks ago, I clicked over to your blog and spent the better part of two days reading your family's story. It has touched me very deeply and given me insights that I didn't even realize I needed.

    You are an excellent writer, and more importantly, to me anyway, an amazing storyteller. I will definitely buy your book. I look forward to reading it, but I also want to have it on hand should a friend or family member suddenly find themselves the parent of a trans child.  

    Thank you for sharing your personal journey with such honesty. That can't be an easy thing. From reading your story I am head over heels for the brave, complex, and beautiful Alice.

      .. these words make me smile

      " I also want to have it on hand should a friend or family member suddenly find themselves the parent of a trans child. "
      because that is precisely what I hope for - that someone, somewhere along the way, will do better because I broke that silence.

      Thank you for that.
