    Hi, I love your blog! Congratulations on having such a wonderful family and making the effort to be a supportive, understanding parent. I was just wondering, a while ago I came across a link on your website to a similar blog about a woman with two children, one a female-identifying girl and the other a gender-nonconforming girl (at birth at least, this might have changed) who identified as a ‘half-half’ – half boy, half girl. I wondered if you could link me to this blog? I really enjoyed reading it but cannot for the life of me remember the name!

    Thanks. 🙂 Frankie.
