Reader scrapbook

Twenty-month-old Faith Schroeder sampled a ripe pear while visiting her grandma, Bonnie Schroeder, in Quincy last month.

Dear Abby: After 10 years of marriage, my now ex-husband told me he is transgender. He isn’t taking hormones, but he makes no attempt to hide his feminine dressing, makeup and wigs from our 6- and 9-year-old sons. They understand little of their dad’s new life, other than that their dad likes “girl stuff.” They often tell me they are embarrassed being with their dad in public when he has his nails painted or is wearing female clothing.
