When I first saw the book “My Daughter, My Son” in my mailbox, I may have groaned. It didn’t look like the kind of topic I was usually interested in.
After reading 50 pages, the human drama and compelling personalities of the principals had me hooked.
What Luca and his mother Betsie went through is beyond what I can imagine. That they are still a loving family, and that they are happy, today says a lot for them as people.
Whether the issue of gender dysphoria affects you or your family, or not, this is a great story. And, sometimes hard to read.
