Thursday, June 17, 2021

I have someone in my family that is going through this right now. It is traumatic for the adult parents and some of the family members. But as I told my relative--it was nothing you did! And he/she was always a caring and wonderful human being. But her child was a son who decided he was a girl--and he has two children of his own-just like the person in this story. I loved the way he transitioned so that his children understood and actually preferred that he was now The Enchantress. As long as children know that they are loved--they will be more accepting then some adults.

Whether you have experienced or are experiencing this in your own family or perhaps you know someone who is experiencing this--this short book is a must read and a total eye opener!

Becoming the Enchantress is the story of a transgender parent that faces personal longing for change. Given the acceptance and encouragement of her children, the parent magically transforms from a Wizard into an Enchantress on Halloween night. The story highlights themes of acceptance and the love between child and parent. 

Reviews for Becoming The Enchantress...

"Becoming the Enchantress is unique in that it is written for children whose parent is the one discovering their dysphoria and seeking reassignment, rather than that of the child or teenager themselves. Becoming the Enchantress fills a heretofore neglected niche in children's literature. It conveys the struggle of a parent to find, in this case, her true identity, and the children's loving acceptance of it. It should prove a useful resource for families with a transgender or non-binary parent."  --W. Luther Jett, retired Special Educator, Montgomery County Public Schools, author of Our Situation and Everyone Disappears 

"Becoming the Enchantress is a beautiful story about a life-changing transition. It uses imagery that children can understand to discuss a difficult topic. The book details the emotions of someone who is learning how to be their true self. The story shows that while children may not fully understand the issue, they are accepting and are willing to love others for who they are." --Stacy Whipp, M.Ed. 

"A wonderful story for all ages of unconditional love and acceptance for people! Be true to who you are and love yourself and you will feel completely fulfilled. This story teaches us that no matter what, a person's heart and soul is what defines them." --Katherine R Stull, LCSW-C 

"Becoming the Enchantress is a wonderful tale for anyone who has questioned their identity or has loved someone doing so. It treats the delicate subject in the most loving way possible, with gorgeous illustrations, spotlighting the magic that positive self-image and family acceptance can create."  --Michelle Zibrat, Art Educator 

"I am both the parent of a trans child and a therapist that supports transitioning children, teens and adults. I love Becoming the Enchantress as it is a lovely story that explains the need to transition from your sex assigned at birth to your true self. Children will connect both with the Wizard and his family in this story. Using the experience of "trying on" a different persona is a lovely way to introduce the children to the wizard and the concept of transitions." --Theresa Fraser, CYC-P, CPT-S, NSCCT, MA, RP, Trauma and Loss Clinical Specialist

Something magical that happened was going to Disneyland for the first time with the kids in the family and seeing their reaction to everything.

My grandson and I were at Disneyland the year of their 50th birthday and there were touches of gold all over the resort. We were waiting in line to ride Dumbo and hoping we'd get the gold Dumbo. The attendent miscounted when letting riders through the gate and we were sent back to wait for the next ride...which put us first in line! Like magic, we rode the gold Dumbo!
