Karen Scot was born Transgender, and was a female in a male body from her earliest self-aware memories. She begged and continuously demanded to be called a female name and be treated like a girl from a small toddler. She sought out girlâ€™s clothing and wore it as much as possible. She played with all little girl friends and imagined as a girl. Each night, she would strive as hard as she could to make her body awake as a female body the next morning, and did this for years.
Karen lived in male drag for 50 years, getting married and having children with a wonderful intelligent woman. Divorcing, she has two children, a male (33) and a female (31), with three grandchildren (6, 5,and 3 years old). Her greatest hope, and the life goal of Karen Adell Scot is this:
“As you live your life, leave a trail of joy behind you.” – Karen Adell Scot
