    Oh it was such a wonderful adventure having a child and I think most of the time my main wish was that my baby was born complete with all the working parts and healthy. I was lucky twice. The only exams I ever had was to monitor my weight ( I was so skiiny with the first one that they said I could gain more than 20 pounds if I wanted. Went up to 26. He was beautiful 8'4oz and 12 days late. Our second born a year and half later once again had nothing but monitoring. Once again 26 pounds over but he ran 45 days late and weighed in at 9'13 oz. If they had been girls I would have been just as delighted. Do these young people think they can return the baby if it is the wrong color. Like redcaboose we were in a rental but in government housing and I put up yellow and blue curtains and my husband bought yellow and blue sheets for the beds in the rooms. I would not trade the way it was for anything. As far as the lady goes - shame on her.
    my goal is to be as good a person as my dogs already think I am

    Our niece knew as soon as she was able to voice an opinion that she would have preferred to be a boy. It was obvious to anyone that knew her from a very early age that she would end up a lesbian. You can not change what you were born to be in my opinion.

    Did transgendering enter into the woman's desire for a quilt in different colors? If not, why is it mentioned here where the original subject of this thread was a replacement for a quilt that the buyer decided she didn't like? I would still like to know what happened to the original quilt -- was it returned or was it remade?

God help us and the children.
    Being transgender is not about "knowing what they want," it's about who they are. It's not a choice.

    I have a client who was born a female in a male's body. For more than 70 years, she tried to be what society thought she should be--a soldier, a dad, little league coach. And for more than 70 years, she was miserable. Two failed marriages, major depression, suicidal ideation, etc. Then she learned of a support group for transgender individuals. It totally changed her life to realize that she is not alone. I watched her blossom from a shy, timid, very depressed male to a confident, engaging, delightful female. Now that she is living as a female, she has a smile from ear to ear. What a blessing to FINALLY be comfortable in your own skin! When I read your post, my first thought was that these children are fortunate to get recognized and helped early, so that they don't have to spend a lifetime hating themselves.

    Transgendering is mentioned because the subject was introduced earlier in the thread.

    Good job with the colors for this picky person. I also must have missed the original post with the explanation.? Why did you have to make another quilt if she was the one who chose to buy it?

    Apparently she bought a quilt from the Shriners and said she did not like the colors. So GrammaTerry who is a much better person than me made her one in the colors she wanted.

    There was a program on this years ago where it was mentioned that doctors sometimes made decisions on sex and in some cases even went so far as to adjust little boys to girls if they felt the organ was so small it was meant to be a girl. Fortunately it is now known it is not possible to determine at that age and kids are being left to develop as they should. Being the mother of two wonderful sons, one of which is homosexual, I can tell you that it is not a choice and never was.

    The quilt was returned. I have it up for sale again. It is such a lovely quilt...maybe one of my favorites for this year, so I won. I have a beautiful quilt on display and I made a brand new one for the lady and her daughter. Her husband picked it up yesterday and he had nothing but good things to say. They were headed to Atlanta to give the daughter the quilt this morning. Things will work out. God always makes room for us to do the right thing.

    You are so right. It all works out for the best. I learned that this year. Good for you. Interesting that she sent her husband. Can you post a picture of the returned quilt?
