The Inspiring Story Of A Transgender Child With A Loving Family

A video wherein a family shares their transgender child's story and how they showed love and acceptance to their child goes viral. The touching story of the Whittington family made a lot of people cry. The Whittington family's story is an inspiration to every family and is a living proof of unconditional love.

According to Huffingpost: 
Jeff and Hillary Whittington found out they were expecting their first child, which they were told was a girl, in 2007 and soon welcomed little baby Ryland. As Ryland grew up, they noticed their child was not just a “tomboy” or going through “a phase.” Ryland eventually began show signs of shame. One day, Ryland said: “When the family dies, I will cut my hair so I can be a boy” and asked, “Why did God make me this way?” The Whittingtons refused to let their child become another statistic. So they let Ryland be his true self.
