They had adopted two twins Wyatt (later Nicole) and Jonas, from Kelly's Cousin Sarah.

When the kids turned three years old, Kelly was introduced to the likings and dislikings of Wyatt

As Wyatt would often express feminine interest and behavior, Kelly tried to help Wyatt in every possible way.

After knowing about Wyatt being transgender, she insisted on finding ways to comfort Wyatt's transition.

She also played a vital role in overcoming her husband's fear regarding the safety of two babies. 

She insisted on making Wayne understand that he possesses one son and a daughter.

His Struggle to Make Nicole Life Easy

Being born into a conservative family, he first feared speaking up and understanding his Trans child Nicole

He faced several challenges in the upbringing of transgender child Nicole

Now, he is working hard to build an environment that could ensure the quality of life for every transgender child.

Nicole  would often talk to her parents about how she felt in the wrong body. Later, her mother had acknowledgment of her feminine identity. 

Nicole was somehow allowed to use the female's bathroom till fifth grade. 

Then, she was forced to use an isolated bathroom as the grandparents of her classmate complained of her using the bathroom, having said that faggoats cannot be in female bathrooms. 

Nicole felt humiliated by her being transgender at that time. Then, Kelly, with her two children, was compelled to settle in Portland, Maine

They remained to conceal their true identity. Kelly was able to convince Wayne about the true identity of Wyatt.

Then, the family together waited five years for transgender children's rights to use the bathroom of their gender identification. 

Maine's Supreme Court verdict on Doe v. Regional School Unit 26, which took five years declared that Nicole's right to use the female bathroom was violated. 

So, the court decided every community school should allow transgender children to use the bathroom according to their gender identification.
