A supportive mother surprised her transgender teen daughter with her first dose of hormone therapy – something she had been waiting two years for – in a moving video chronicling the life-changing moment.

Erica Maison, a mother-of-five from Detroit, Michigan, filmed 14-year-old Corey’s heart-wrenching reaction to finding her estrogen prescription hidden behind a couch cushion after two-and-half years of waiting to begin hormone therapy before she stopped the camera to embrace her daughter.

‘This was it, this was the most pivotal turning point in her life, and we both knew it,’ Erica told Buzzfeed of Corey’s emotional response to the news.

The 30-second clip begins with Corey sitting on the couch, asking: ‘What’s going on?’

Without giving away any of the surprise, Erica tells her daughter to reach behind the pillow she is sitting on.

‘Come on! What did you do this time?’ Corey says with a smile.

After she pulls out a plastic bag from behind the cushion, she opens it to find a box filled with estrogen pills.

‘Do you know what that is?’ Erica asks her, and when Corey realizes what she is holding she bursts into tears, as she stands up to embrace her mom.

… The proud mother explained that Corey was ‘always feminine’ when she was younger, but she wore boys clothes to school, and Erica thought she might be gay.

However, after Corey was taken out of school because she was being bullied, they came across a video of Jazz Jennings, a transgender YouTube star who Corey immediately identified with.

After watching one of Jazz’s clips,Corey started dressing like a girl in public, and although she faced a great deal of harassment from strangers, her mother encouraged her to be confident by advising her to ‘strike a pose’ every time a stranger tried to take her picture.

After researching therapists who work with transgender children, Erica was sent five hours away from their home to the gender clinic at Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago.

Corey was soon given a $21,000 puberty-suppressing implant that was fully covered by their insurance.

Their therapist and the hospital’s medical team agreed that Corey could star hormone therapy in August when she turned 14, but the family still had to wait for the therapist to send a ‘readyness letter’.

On the day she filmed the video, Erica said she received a phone call from the pharmacy telling her that Corey’s estrogen was ready to be picked up, and the ecstatic mom immediately began thinking of ways to tell her daughter that the moment she had been waiting nearly three years for was finally here.

‘I want people to watch this video, and see the raw emotion of a transgender child that can finally live her life the way she feels inside,’ Erica noted. ‘I want people to see this, because maybe it will open their eyes. Open their eyes to anyone who’s different.’

The transgender issue is tragic enough as it is, because these are people who are mentally ill and need help — no matter what a person does, they cannot change whether they are a man or a woman, and pretending otherwise does not help anyone. However, this is even more horrifying, because this is a child receiving hormone treatments that will have irreversible, lifelong effects — at 11, a child’s brain isn’t even fully formed yet to be capable of long-term reasoning, yet a parent is supposed to let them make such a huge decision? What happens if this boy grows up and realizes that it was just a phase? There will be no going back from these treatments, and while it can be painful for a parent to tell their child no, sometimes that is the kinder and more loving thing to do.
