One of my closest childhood friends has three kids, one of whom is transgender. I've witnessed close up and personally how difficult it has been for he and his wife to raise a transgender child. Like all of us parents who love their children and would do anything for them, they only want the best for their child. And in fact, they moved states to find a supportive environment for their child. This is not a question of if we should do this, and it's not a question of personal opinion, this is a human rights issue. People are born the way they are and all people deserve dignity and respect, like every one of us.
