IFOA is proud to open the 44th edition of IFOA Weekly with Michelle Alfano‘s new book, The Unfinished Dollhouse: A Memoir of Gender and Identity. Join Michelle Alfano and Rev. Anne Hines as they discuss familial relationships in the thought-provoking and touching story of The Unfinished Dollhouse.
“No mother is prepared for the moment when a child comes out to her as a person whose physical gender is out-of-keeping with his emotional and psychological gender-identity. In Michelle Alfano’s intimate memoir, she recounts her experience as the mother of a transgender child….In the years to follow, Frankie’s parents experienced an education in parenting a child transitioning from female to male – which pronouns to use, how to disclose the information to friends, family, school and how to deal with the reactions of all – some heartening, some surprising, some disappointing.”
