The FULL Transition Story. Is There a Happy Ending?

Billy Burleigh struggled with his sexual identity since the age of five. His first memory of this struggle was standing in front of the school he was attending, looking at all the other kids, wondering where he belonged, and having this thought, “God made a mistake, I’m a girl.” Billy did not share this thought with anyone but continued on to graduate from high school. He graduated college with a Bachelors and a Masters in Mechanical Engineering, and he swam competitively for the college he attended. On the outside, it appeared that Billy had it all pulled together.

But the struggle in Billy’s mind about his sexual identity did not go away. Billy fought his thoughts for years before agreeing with his thoughts. He transitioned to appearing as a woman, changed his legal documents, and presented as a woman for about seven years. But the problems he was trying to resolve only became worse. At this point Billy called out to God; he gave both his life and all of his problems to God. Now, Billy is married to a beautiful lady, has two daughters, a son-in-law, and is living for God.
