By Published on March 25, 2022

Abby Martinez lost custody of her daughter Yaeli to the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services because Martinez did not fully support her daughter “transitioning” to a boy.

When she was 16, Yaeli moved out of her mother’s home and later changed her name to Andrew. Yaeli began taking cross-sex hormones but still struggled with depression.
