New Zealand, we love you

I don’t spend too much time thinking about the future (I might, if getting through the day weren’t such a mission sometimes), but I like to have some knowledge of what it might hold.  For instance, Freddie is a thumb sucker and will definitely need braces, it’s good to have an idea of when he’ll need them and what that will cost.  Lots.

So with Izzy I like to be informed, what will happen when she goes to school, what will happen when/if she needs a passport, what will happen when puberty begins and we want to pursue hormone blockers, what will happen if she wants to transition surgically?

The more I read, the more I realise how very fortunate Izzy is to be a New Zealander and perversely how very difficult it is for those in other countries.
