"I don't want to hide myself from the world anymore. I am so incredibly excited! I am also scared," the future in-law of Meri and Kody Brown explained.

"I am scared of hate I'll receive, the things people I care about will say about me, and violence," they wrote in the heartfelt post. "As a white masculine, presenting person comes a lot of privilege, and I am still scared."

"I am so incredibly grateful for trans affirming medical care. I am so proud of myself that I stopped running from something I've known about myself for a long time. I am proud of myself and my journey. I never thought I would make it to this point and WOW, I am glad I did," they penned in the note.

"I cannot thank the supportive people in my life enough for helping and encouraging me to foster this growth and discovery. I am so fortunate to be surrounded by an incredible amount of love and support. Thank you!," they concluded.
