She's sleeping and I'm up

The decision to homeschool Trinity and her little brother, Lucien was made for many reasons, but the most important: Safety. We wanted very much to send her in stealth mode this year with only the principal, school nurse, teacher, and school psychologist knowing of her transgender status, but the school suddenly wanted us to inform everyone in the staff, including the librarian! We didn't understand why they wanted this, something that could out our child and make her time at school unsafe.

So now, I am homeschooling, giving her the best chance to be around kids who are also homeschooled and she'll make friends with people who like her for her, not wonder about her because she's not society's norm.
