Sharon Kerwin always dreamt of having a little girl to make her family complete. And her dream came true when her daughter Rebecca was born. But at the age of 10 years old, Rebecca dropped the bombshell to her mother that she no longer wanted to be a girl but wanted to be a boy.
Wanting to do what would make her child happiest, Sharon made the life-changing decision to lose her little girl and let Rebecca live as a boy. Rebecca - now Blake - is a happy 17-year-old transgender who is grateful for the decision his mother made all those years ago.
Blake and Sharon join us today to discuss the hurdles they have had to overcome and the importance of being accepted for who you are.
