Emily Iannielli, Born to be a girl!

Emily was born a boy but knew deep down she was meant to be a “girl” since age 4. She has endured many family tragedy and has accomplished her studies in Mechanical Engineering at Virginia Tech and followed that up with an Accounting degree at Hofstra University and worked in Engineering field and as a CPA. Emily has been very depressed and suicidal and is on medical disability and long term disability and is focusing now on advocating for her son as his “dad” and is transition from male to female and living 24/7 as a girl. She is only doing what she knew she had to do since age of 4 but is still in love with wife and son and is trying her best to help her son who is 15 and in the hospital going on 5 weeks for depression, suicide ideation and autistic rage. I am my son’s biggest supporter along with his mother, my wife and we stand together in unity to help our son get back on the right track. The hardest and emotionsl time will come in June 2014 when we take him from Long Island where we live to Hillside, a residential school which Matty will attend and live as this is our “Hail Mary Pass” and we have the full support of our son’s school district who is responsible for the placement because to date nothing else suggested and implemented has been successful. We are hoping this is the miracle for our son, Matty a wonderful kid with a great big heart but has emotional and behavioral difficulties.   Love, Mom and Dad
