Transgender Dad Leaves Wife and Seven Kids to Live Life As a Six-Year-Old Girl

A transgender dad with a wife and seven kids left his family to live life as a six-year-old girl.
Canadian Stefonknee Wolscht, 52, was a cross dresser before he was married to Maria and raised a
family as a man called Paul, but at 46 she realised she was transgender.
She was told to "stop being trans or leave" - so Stefonknee did.
Now the Toronto resident lives with friends as a little girl, even calling them her "adoptive mummy and daddy".
She says the older couple accept her chosen identity and she spends her time wearing pretty dresses and playing with their grandchildren.
The reason she is living as a six-year-old now is because she couldn't do so when she was herself young.
Stefonknee spoke about her life in a video for gay news site The Daily Xtra , produced with The Transgender Project .
"I can’t deny I was married. I can’t deny I have children," she says in the footage.
"But I’ve moved forward now and I’ve gone back to being a child. I don’t want to be an adult right now."
After splitting from Maria, she moved to Toronto to live as woman and began hormone replacement therapy in 2009.
But then her life began to fall apart. She lost her job as a mechanic after customers couldn't accept her being transgender, slept in a homeless shelter and attempted suicide.
Then, in 2012, Stefonknee was invited to her daughter's wedding - but only on the condition she dress as a man, not speak to the family and sit at the back of the church.
Hours later, she attempted to end her life once more.

Now, with the support of a LGBT church, Stefonknee has turned her life around - and now campaigns foe greater understanding of trans issues.
"I paid a pretty heavy price for transitioning. I've already lost everything, and everything has happened. I'm gonna be me, and I'm gonna show other people that it's OK to be feminine for a guy."
Stefonknee added: "I have a mommy and a daddy - an adopted mommy and daddy - who are totally comfortable with me being a little girl.
"And their children and their grandchildren are totally supportive."
Her courage has inspired others to admit their own transgender leanings.
"You see a guy that's 300 pounds with a goatee that pulls in on a Harley and is going through my closet and saying: 'Can I wear this dress? Can I kiss you while I'm wearing the dress?'
"You don't expect it."
