Welcome Ann,

I read your story and was moved. Was it Elder Oaks that said that as a church we do not fully understand the transgender phenomenon. You are truly a pioneer.

again welcome!

I'm not sure about Elder Oaks, but I know I heard Elder Christofferson say something to the effect of, "that is something we need to know more about," or something we need to understand better, etc.
