Comming Out To My Kids School

I just got my common-law name change done in my school district and changed on all my kids school records and paperwork. It is also noted that I am transgender and should be referred to with female pronouns.

It all started when I was talking to my attorney who was handling an school related issue with one of my children and I brought up the fact that my different on all my kids paperwork and the school was the only ones to be using my male name yet. My attorney said I can take care of that for you if you like and I agreed, so she contacted the school attorney and the school attorney said "what ever she wants". She (the school attorney) sent a memo from the top down stating that I should now be referred to as Lynn and female pronouns should be used. This memo went to all the principles, teachers involved, secretaries and everyone else involved with me or the care of my children.

While this is no great surprise to the school as I have kinda been out with the school, this now gets everything out in the open so I don't have to worry anymore and I am free to be me. It feels like someone just lifted a ton of bricks off my chest.
