Today our third child Jackson has announced their preference for the use of she/her pronouns.
As parents we know this has been a significant decision and we want to affirm Jackson in her desire to be at peace with who they are, and she will never not have a place in our family.
As long-term followers of Jesus we believe that a resolute love is the only lens through which to view our children, and this remains true when it comes to the subject of gender identity.
Having been a Christian pastor and leader over many years, I am grateful that this faith centres around the question of who Jesus is, rather than what is believed about this subject.
We look forward to being all we can be for our family as they all continue to grow into the kind of adults we know they can be.
