Online Support Meeting

Paria Hassouri, pediatrician, mother and author of “Found in Transition: A Mother’s Evolution During Her Child’s Gender Change,” will join us from 7 to 8 p.m. to share her uplifting and engaging story about her journey from initial resistance to eventual embrace of her child’s gender transition. A Q&A will follow.

Here’s what Kirkus Reviews says about the book:

“In this engrossing and sometimes heart-wrenching account, pediatrician Hassouri describes Ava’s … transition from male to female with approachable, empathetic language that bridges gaps in understanding about the transition process. The author’s unflinching honesty about her initial ignorance regarding trans issues is refreshing, and her unwavering adherence to truth makes the story both compelling and edifying. … A moving and relatable story of love and heartache … a unique parenting story that has plenty to say about families in general.”

The book can be purchased at or other booksellers.
