I believe in Angels

I have just been told by my consultant at the hospital that my appeal for funding my GRS has been successful.

I wanted to say a very big Thank you x million for all your kind thoughts.

I never expected the wonderful news I received today. My journey has become very spiritual to me. Mum & I have shared so many tears but I never ever dared dream she would be alongside me supporting me & willing me to be able to have this surgery. Today our prayers were answered. Bless you for helping that to happen.

Later this year or early next year I should be having my gender realignment surgery with Mr Phil Thomas FRCS
Urological Surgeon & the lovely Liz Hills & her team , at
Sussex Nuffield Hospital,
Brighton Sussex.

Miracles can happen
Best wishes
PS Please excuse the slightly bizarre photo. It was from April 2007 before my beloved parents had even agreed to meet Debbie & were still in denial. They were continuing to ask me not to transition while they were alive & I was praying for a miracle. Rather like my safari head wear we have all been on a very long journey & come a very long way.

Wow have you come down from the ceiling yet? You now have the end of your gender limbo in sight.

I am thinking of the words of Winston Churchill when he said:

"This is not the beginning of the end, but the end of the beginning."

As its the beginning of a new life for you.

Lots of hugs and love Abi xxx
