Led By The Child Who Simply Knew

Twin boys Wyatt and Jonas were identical in every way but one. Wyatt knew she was girl to the core, and now lives as one, with the help of a brave, loving family and a path-breaking doctorÕs care. Now Nicole, pictured, and Jonas Maines, 14, have gone public with their struggles of growing up transgendered. Nicole is on a medically controlled regimin of hormone-blocking drugs to suppress puberty. Soon she will begin taking estrogen, and after the age of 18, will most likely have gender-altering surgery.
