Today, we are continuing our series "All Kinds of Families". Our guest is Leslie Lagerstrom. She will talk about parenting a transgender child.

Leslie Lagerstrom is a proud mom of two children, who, after a recent retirement from a 21-year corporate marketing career, is focusing her passion on being a writer and advocate. In 2011, she created the blog Transparenthood™, which chronicles her family’s experience raising a transgender child. Through Transparenthood, Leslie has been able to lend support to parents who find themselves in the same situation while also helping spread awareness on the subject of gender variant/transgender children.  Believing the time is now to change hearts and minds, she volunteers to speak on a national basis, most frequently appearing in front of medical and teaching professionals. A graduate of Iowa State University, Leslie is at home in Minneapolis, where she enjoys downhill skiing with family and long walks with her faithful dog Molly.
