This is the moment a mum surprises her transgender daughter with her first course of hormone therapy treatment. Mum-of-five Erica Maison filmed the moment she surprised her 14-year-old daughter Corey with the tablets to help her continue her transition.

“This was it, this was the most pivotal turning point in her life, and we both knew it,” Erica said to Buzzfeed.

In the clip – which has now been viewed almost two million times – Corey says to Erica “what’s going on?” as her mum tells her to look behind a cushion on the sofa.

As Corey realises what her mum has got for her, she bursts into tears and jumps up to embrace her. Posting the video to YouTube, Erica explained: “Today after waiting 2 1/2 years she FINALLY got her oestrogen.

“I picked it up while she was in school so she had no idea. We have been waiting months for the readiness letter to be finalized and sent to Chicago, so had no idea on a timeline of when it would actually happen. Sorry I had to stop recording because we were both blubbering sobbing fools.”
