I am trans, okay?

I don't think I'd be able to let her be around Kloie.

- So are you leaving? - Don't ask me no questions.

Don't ask me nothing.

how, like, it used to be.

- How long are you willing to wait?

You're not taking him outside, Danae.

this baby does not have my DNA.

my [bleep] baby with me.

There you go.

- We met at a party in Chicago,

and I was instantly attracted to him,

but there was one thing I didn't know about him.

- For all my Facebook friends, there's something

that I've been really meaning to tell everyone.

I'm transgender,

and it feels so good to say that.

- When we got together, I had no clue.

When I found out, it didn't change any feelings for him,

and we've been together for almost three years now.

Recently I had to leave Chicago

and move to Milwaukee because my mom got a new job,

and Danae decided to follow me.

My mom has never been totally on board

with our relationship.

- Knowing that you don't think

there was anything wrong in that,

that makes it even harder for me

to trust you to take care of my daughter.

- Even though I love Danae,

our relationship has been constant drama,

and we're always breaking up and getting back together.

Yes, I did make a mistake. - Of course.

- But you still [bleep] up at the end of the day too.

- I did. I cheated on you.

I did. I did. - Okay.

During one of those breaks...

I started hooking up with a guy that I knew from before,

and that's how I got pregnant.

When I told the biological dad,

he didn't want to be involved,

so for now, he's out of the picture.

- So I brought you both a baby.

- Despite my mess-up, Danae has made it clear

that he wants to raise this baby with me.

- There you go, buddy. Got you.

you know, "Why am I different?

"Why don't I have an arm, and you do,

"and Daddy does, and Grandma does,

and everyone else has an arm,"

but you know, he doesn't.

that he was born beautiful,

and there is nothing wrong with him.

If anything, I hope it pushes him

to be better, to be better.

Never give up.

I feel like we are connected,

- So I told them.

One of them was very supportive,

I've actually had people tell me

that some who I thought were my friends

were actually, like, saying, like, really rude stuff.

So it's just kind of like--

I don't know if I have financial issues yet.

I do kind of. I mean, I do, but--
