To the entire staff at Kryger Institute, THANK YOU!

I completed the painting on the front a week before my surgery. It is titled “Middle of the Chrysalis”. To fully become one’s self, there is usually a period of breaking down to rebuild. This is especially true of being trans.

Words cannot express my gratitude to the entire team. From start to finish, every single person was kind and compassionate. You have allowed me to take a huge, important step to feeling more like I fit in this body and this world. From the bottom of my heart I thank you.
