All birth announcements are meant to be celebrated, but an ad written by one Australia mom for her 19-year-old transgender son is particularly special.
Yolanda Bogert, of Jimboomba, recently took out an ad in the birth section of Australia's Courier-Mail newspaper for her son, Kai, who came out to her as transgender last week. The ad was a combination retraction, announcement and symbol of love.

The post went viral on social media after it was tweeted on Monday night by a Queensland resident and then retweeted thousands of times.
Yolanda told the Courier-Mail that writing the announcement was a "no-brainer."
“I needed to show my son I support him 100 per cent and wanted to let the world know that," she added.
