A Michigan mom’s video is going viral after she made the decision to give her 14-year-old daughter a present one day after school — her first dose of hormones.
Corey Maison told WJBK-TV that she felt as though she spent the first 10 years of her life in someone else’s body. Born a boy, she said, all she wanted to do was play with Barbie dolls and dress up in her mother’s heels and dresses.
So on Sept. 24, Corey’s mom, Erica picked her up from school, settled her on the couch and began to record a short video.
“Do you know what that is?” Erica asked after Corey reached behind a pillow and pulled a pink box out of a black bag.
According to the description of the video posted to YouTube, the video was cut short as Erica and Corey “were both blubbering sobbing fools.” However, Erica told WJBK that it was an “easy decision” to help her daughter although it hasn’t always been an easy process.
