We got a phone call last night from a long lost relative, Mike's niece, who is now his nephew. We haven't heard from this person for almost 4 years and she had gone into seclusion to have the operation (in Canada) marry her long time soul mate and adopt a little girl. Her name was Samantha, now it is David, and he sent a picture of himself and his new family via email. He looks so happy and content now. The rest of the family apparently aren't very open-minded and he has been ostracized by them and is now treated (in his own words) "like a bad toilet joke." How sad that they can turn their back on him now, and not support his life changing decision. He is going to try and bring the family up in January before he has to go in for the final stage of the operation. It was just strange to all of a sudden switch gender thinking while talking to him. But he had a miserable life as a woman, so I am glad he is finally happy.
