BFFs: Thomasina and Lily

Did you listen to last week's This American Life Episode: Somewhere Out There? The story about eight year-old transgendered BFFs KILLED ME. I made a tear. Then I called myself a baby for ever complaining about not fitting in or not having friends.

Yeah - i just heard this episode and was really touched. As the dad says, it's kind of hard to believe that these kids would be this sure but to listen to the kids in their own words it's pretty clear how they feel

For these two kids to realize their identity at such a young age is amazing! what a touching story.
