September 14, 2012

I spoke with my cousin, who is very supportive, today. She talks with some of my family members, who are having a hard time with my being — and staying — married to a transsexual. It was actually a very heartening call. I know some of them will never be able to accept Mara. But maybe there will be an opening for a possibility of some level of acceptance there somewhere. I’m not always getting good read on how some family members are responding to what’s going on. For example, I wasn’t sure what my sister, whom we had brunch with in Phoenix, really thought about meeting Mara. But I heard through the grapevine (she told my mother, who told my cousin, who told me) that she didn’t see it as a negative experience — that our visit was pretty pleasant. She had also told other family members that her 5-year-old granddaughter wasn’t fazed by meeting Mara. So I’m glad there are some channels of getting positive information about Mara, and our relationship, out to family members who are still in doubt.
