Like all sisters, Debbie and I have had our good times and our difficult times. But, she is just the very best. Growing up as the middle child (I am the eldest), I'm sure she often felt isolated as our youngest sister and I would gang up on her. But she grew up into a wonderful, loving, hard-working, intelligent, and beautiful woman.
After some initial difficulties with my transition, she has turned into one of my biggest supporters. She took it upon herself to research transgenderism and learn all she could. I am so very proud and honored to have her for a sister.
She is a remarkable woman and an incredible mother of two outstanding children. I love you, Debbie. Happy Birthday.
