(Scroll down for video) A family is speaking out about their 6-year-old child who is transitioning from male to female.
The first grader is the youngest in her family of 3 children. Her parents said that she was always different, and they assumed she might be gay.
However, they soon learned that their son, Dev Keswani, is trapped in a male body. After learning about her struggles, the family allowed her to transition.
Dev was renamed Devina, and she was allowed to dress as a girl. Devina’s big brother, Vine, 17, who suffers from a rare form of dwarfism, is very protective of her.
He said that it took some time for him to get used to the fact that he no longer has a little brother with whom to play football.
Her sister Sarina, who is the middle child and is making a name for herself in the world of pageants, is also very supportive as are her mother Vaishali and father Anil, who is a doctor.
