The journey of Susan Stanton from Steven Stanton is a difficult one, but this is just the beginning for the new convert!
Susan Stanton is the newly acquired name, and a newly acquired identity. Susan Stanton converted from being a man, to a woman. She is like any other woman: she watches her weight, tries to balance her work life and personal life and goes crazy worrying about her son who is learning how to drive. Susan Stanton, even though is a woman now, but will always remain a father to her son.
CNN today showed a documentary today called ‘Her name was Steve’ in which Susan Stanton’s journey and life as a transgender is shown.
Steven Stanton was a City Manager in Largo, Florida. In 2007, he announced that he is going to become a woman, from Steven Stanton to Susan Stanton. It came as a shock not only to friends but also family. After her transition, Susan Stanton had to face some serious troubles; she got terminated as the city manager and her marriage ended, but her relationship with her son remained the same.
During that time, Susan Stanton had to face a lot of difficulties as she suffered from depression and suicidal cravings. However, now she has become the City Manager of Lake Worth and is leading a life as a single mother. So things are on the road to recovery for Susan Stanton!
