Orange County, California

Bio: I am a mom of two wonderful kids, a wife and a business owner from Orange County, California. For those of you not familiar with our sleepy little town, it is the land of "Keeping up with the Jones"! They say if you can make it in New York you can make it anywhere but I have to tell you, if you can make it here in the land of excess, entitlement, spray tans and soccer moms (not to mention the Real Housewives) without losing yourself or your mind, you can truly make it anywhere! So, I am just a mom, trying to make my way in this crazy and wonderful world and doing a pretty good job if I do say so myself!

    Hey girlfriend! I am so proud of you and everything you say touches my heart. Being a mom of a beautiful lesbian daughter Amber (who you have known since day one) and watching her grow up in a society where she was constantly tormented, ridiculed & hated for her differences, it means so much hearing your words. Growing up in Orange County was the most difficult thing of all for her. I knew she was gay years before she ever came out so when she did all I said was “its about time!!” After that, I started getting phone calls from her high school telling me she couldn’t hold hands with her girlfriend & I needed to “control” my daughter or when she went looking for a job & over the phone the employer thought she was perfect but once she saw her, she wouldn’t even come out to talk to her or interview her cause she has short hair and where’s men’s clothing. So basically, she finally came out and was comfortable with her sexuality because she knew we didn’t care or judge but then the rest of society did!!! She was suicidal at times but with the love of my family and friends, she got stronger and stronger with every dirty look or foul words yelled at her. She finally had enough and when she met some friends that live up in Northern California (a much more “excepting” area of California) and although I didn’t want her to move that far away, I helped her packed her bags and told her to get the fuck out of here!! Now, she has a job, a girlfriend and I just came back from visiting her and she has never been more happy in her life!! I miss her so much but seeing her happy is priceless and something I have been wanting to see for many many years!! So to you my friend I love you and thank you for this website and will visit it often!!! Please keep in touch!! Kath

    Oh my goodness, I can’t express how much I LOVE your blog. You and your family are a downright inspiration! Ashlyn is so lucky to have you; I pray that more transgender children can have parents as loving and accepting as you! Best wishes!
