Hey mom I miss you.

Hey mom I miss you. I can’t thank you enough for all you’ve done for me in the short time we’ve known each other. It’s been only a like a week and a half in total over the course of 5 years. Over that short few in person and online, you showed me how to be fearless and compassionate. You have shown me to be smart and outgoing and to challenge everything. You’ve shown me the courage to face my fears and start transitioning and I am eternally grateful. Yes it was a social transition back in 2016 but it was a start.

I’m happy to say that I’ve finally started hormones and been working the beautiful virtual skies over northern California in air traffic. I have two wonderful girlfriends and they mean the world to me. I was honestly hoping to have you meet them one day. I chose a new first name Ashe (well because of a video game character) meaning power, command, and authority. And the middle name Zera meaning new beginning. However this feels fitting having command of my new beginnings. It feels great to have control of my life for the most part.

I love you. I’ll do my best to be available for Eric in the mean time and I hope to see you again.
