This is a beautiful story, folks. Regardless the skeptic, I am sure the video will leave you in tears.
Or perhaps my personal dummy is overly emotional this afternoon. Sniffle. Sniffle.
Milla is 9 years old and lives with his mother, father, and older sister in Brisbane, Australia.
Milla, his family, and his doctors have made the decision the he should begin transitioning into a male. To help her family and friends understand, Renée made a touching video.
In it, she says:
Hello my friends and family. … I’d love you to watch this slideshow I put together. … It explains some major changes that are underway for Milla and our family. Milla needs our support now more than ever!
She begins by explaining Milla’s evolution.
Around the age of 2, Milla started referring to himself as a “boy-girl,” his mother said.
“Everyone told us it was just a phase. They’d say, ‘She’s just a tomboy, she’ll grow out of it.’”
“One day Milla came to me in tears asking if there was any medicine I could buy to turn her into a boy.”
“She started making comments like, ‘Why was I born like this?,’ ‘I want to be a boy — not just look like one.’”
