"Sometimes it's true that I wish I had a regular father, but only because I don't remember what it was like to have a normal family. Sometimes it's hard to have a family that is different. But most of the time I think I am the luckiest kid on earth. Even though my family is different, I can't think of any way that life could be better."

--Zach, son of author and transgender woman Jennifer Finney Boylan, quoted in her recent New York Times column. (Thanks to Family Equality for pointing out the piece.)
