My friend is in the middle of a custody battle for her 7 year old son, Jake. To make matters more challenging, Jake was assigned female at birth, but his father does not respect Jake's asserted identity (i.e., he still thinks Jake is a girl and uses Jake's birth name).

My friend's legal bills are piling up, and Jake's father is using her support of Jake's asserted gender identity as evidence of poor parenting. Jake's dad has filed a lawsuit to take away all of my friend's parenting rights solely because she supports her child's self-proclaimed gender.

If you feel inclined, please consider donating to help offset her legal fees. The YouCaring site was put together by her mother so that my friend can hire the best lawyer in our area to help my friend keep her transgender child.

If you can't donate, but still want to help out, please consider sharing the link!
