“There’s still a yearning to be considered who she is,” Leigh says. “She doesn’t have sleepovers. She doesn’t walk into a bathroom without being concerned. We haven’t entered her in sports. So her desire is probably to be able to exist without that fear of someone rejecting her when they learn the truth.”

Albert thinks about those times he forced her to act like a boy, when she fought him with fists, feet, nails and teeth.
