This post shared on Twitter shows how a grandma made sure to accept her trans grandchild, by making some adorable alterations to a doll she gifted him during childhood.
To love and support their grandkids is what every grandparent dreams of, no matter what comes to be. This tweet that was shared by a grandchild who was assigned female at birth but then transitioned to male, shows just that. The tweet was made regarding a Raggedy Ann doll that was gifted to him by his grandmother back when he was a child.
In the caption that accompanies this post where he has also attached ‘before and after’ photos of the doll, he adds more clarity as to what happened. He writes, “So when I was a kid, I had a raggedy Ann doll given to me by my grandmother. It had my birth name embroidered into a heart on its chest. This Christmas my Grandmother borrowed it and gave it back, now with pants, shorter hair, and my new name sewn in place. He’s trans, like me.”
