Amazing Mom Announces Son Is Transgender In Awesome Facebook 'Birth Announcement'

One amazing mom, Jodi Gholson Oliver posted her son Jes's "birth announcement" on Facebook. In actuality, Jodi used this as an opportunity to announce that her son had come out as transgender. The woman is pure class!

Check out her announcement:

Jodi Gholson Oliver's message reads:

"Yep, it's true! I am proud to announce that I have given birth to a bouncing baby boy on December 18, 1994. For about 18 1/2 years we thought he was a girl, who just happened to like bugs, tattoos, flames, skulls, snakes, lizards, etc. etc. Then one day Jes explained to us that he never felt like he was supposed to be a girl, always identified more as boy and therefore planned on living as a male (a term called transgender in case you are not sure). This is something that we have all seen over the years and I am so happy that he can finally feel like the person he was born to be!

If you have any questions please feel free to ask me as I will do my best to help you understand a concept that may be unfamiliar to you! If you think your question may be inappropriate, it probably is and I will probably not it!-- :-) feeling proud with Jes Oliver."

Pure grace. 

We love this and Jodi is a truly excellent mom!
