Lorilyn Bridges shares her experience of having a transgender child—from the steep learning curve involved to grappling with her own intense feelings. When Lorilyn’s son Grammy-nominated producer and songwriter Teddy Geiger was 29-years-old, he told Lorilyn that he had always felt he was a woman. For the mom of three, the revelation came as a shock. And, as a mother who prided herself on being deeply involved in her kids’ lives, she felt guilty at what she perceived as an integral maternal oversight. How could she not have known? Lorilyn shares how she coped with her guilt and—something many moms will relate to—failed expectations: when our kids turn out differently than we anticipated.
