To My Fellow Two-Spirits,

To my dear son Zac,
I promise to raise you as a loving-nature human.

Dear Nolan, Patrick, Cullen and Gabriel,
This Mother’s Day I am again thinking of my grandsons future and what I am doing to change the world if only by a small fraction.
To my children,
I hope that the fervor that is building continues to build and spread and that the world has made progress to minimize the effects of our past actions.
I promise to purchase carbon offsets when we fly.
