Forty Thrive's Top 10 of Season 2: #2

Meet Dr. Paria Hassouri, a pediatrician, mother of three, transgender rights activist, and author of Found in Transition: A Mother’s Evolution During Her Child’s Gender Change. I met Paria in 2019 while my family was going through our own transition, when one of our children came out as transgender.

Paria and her family were a little bit ahead of us, going through a transition of their own with their teenage daughter. Now while you may not be familiar with transgender children or transgender issues and challenges, Paria’s story is universal to any mom, really any human, who at one time believed that life would look one way until a bomb is completely dropped. Through Paria’s story, you can feel her slowly begin to grow, find acceptance and express the unconditional love that was always within her.

But it wasn’t pretty and it wasn’t easy.
