I sat in an empty church today, praying and meditating. Thoughts of my childhood flooded my mind. I was blessed to have wonderful parents who nurtured me along with my brother and sister. I remember going to church and Mass. I never knew that years later I would have a spiritual conversion. Many years after that, I have a conversion of moving from one gender to the other (male to female).
Looking back I believe that my spiritual conversion helped me to weather the storms of questioning whether my gender was the authentic one I was living. Now thirteen years later, I can say that I made the right choice. I've never been happier in my life.
