An inspirational story of accepting and embracing two trans people in a family??a family who shows what's possible when you "lead with love."
All Amanda Jetté Knox ever wanted was to enjoy a stable life. She never knew her biological father, and while her mother and stepfather were loving parents, the situation was sometimes chaotic. At school, she was bullied mercilessly, and at the age of fourteen, she entered a counselling program for alcohol addiction and was successful.
While still a teenager, she met the love of her life. They were wed at 20, and the first of three children followed shortly. Jetté Knox finally had the stability she craved??or so it seemed. Their middle child struggled with depression and avoided school. The author was unprepared when the child she knew as her son came out as transgender at the age of eleven. Shocked, but knowing how important it was to support her daughter, Jetté Knox became an ardent advocate for trans rights.
But the story wasn't over. For many years, the author had coped with her spouse's moodiness, but that chronic unhappiness was taking a toll on their marriage. A little over a year after their child came out, her partner also came out as transgender. Knowing better than most what would lie ahead, Jetté Knox searched for positive examples of marriages surviving transition. When she found no role models, she determined that her family would become one.
The shift was challenging, but slowly the family members noticed that they were becoming happier and more united. Told with remarkable candour and humour, and full of insight into the challenges faced by trans people, Love Lives Here is a beautiful story of transition, frustration, support, acceptance, and, of

Such a heartfelt, loving book. Amanda isn't out to make herself look "good" in telling the story of her family members' transitions but she does a bang up job of showing just how much better they're all off for it, how much happier, & how meaningful supportive transition is. Pretty sure reading this makes Amanda my mom now & I'm totally here for it. ( )

The subtitle of this book really sums up the whole memoir: A Story of Thriving in a Transgender Family. I think the author carefully chose the verb "thriving" rather than "living" or "surviving" or "being". Thriving connotes a much more optimistic tone than those others and sets the tone for what would have been an upheaval.

Amanda Knox thought she had a pretty standard nuclear family: three sons, a father and a mother. She recognized that there were issues. Their middle child had problems at school and her spouse always seemed to be angry. She herself struggled with depression and anxiety. Turns out those were just symptoms of gender identity and sexuality factors. Within a few years her middle child came out as a girl, her spouse revealed he had always gender identified as a female and she recognized that she was a lesbian. The story of how the family got through these challenging times is very affirming and a great read. I would imagine that for parents and children facing similar challenges this book would be a lifesaver. ( )

Amanda Jette Knox has written this story of her family with the hope it will help other people and families deal with transgender issues. She has also written it with sometimes brutal honesty, some humour and always with love and compassion.

Amanda's middle child came out as transgender when she was 11. About a year later, the person Amanda always thought of as her husband also....after years of carrying a huge emotional and psychological burden...admitted that she was also transgender.

My son's best friend transitioned when they were in high school. I have three friends with transgender children or grandchildren.
So, I have people I care about in this group and I try to be supportive and respectful. Ms. Knox's book gave me some further insights in this regard. I am happy that things are getting better for all members of the LGBTQ community, but there is still a long way to go, making this an important (as well as entertaining) book. ( )
