‘Pain Never Goes Away,’ Says Mother of Daughter Who Took Her Life After ‘Transitioning’ to a Boy
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.
At 19, Yaeli took her own life.
Martinez shared her story with The Daily Signal in an exclusive video interview. Watch the documentary to learn why Martinez says DCFS took her daughter from her.
