Wow, what a tumultuous year we’ve come through. It has been unlike any other in my life and I know for millions of others.

The bad news is that so many families are in bereavement over the loss of their loved ones. For me, along with a small team of colleagues, I’m most grateful to be continuing to produce and host the New Dimensions program series. This

A Mother’s Journey In Exploring Transgender Issues with Paria Hassouri, M.D.

Can you imagine having your 13 year old son report to you that she is a girl? That’s what happened to pediatrician Paria Hassouri. In her memoir we join her through the reactions of shock, resistance, grief, acceptance, and finally pride. Transgender people have had to live in the shadows and their stories have been underreported in mainstream media. The majority of people feel either male or female.
