One mother found herself in this exact situation when her daughter's grandmother refused to accept her granddaughter's gender identity. The child, who was assigned male at birth, has since transitioned and found happiness in her true identity. However, her grandmother's refusal to understand has caused emotional turmoil, leading the mother to make a difficult decision. Let's dive into this heart-wrenching story. 😢
