Blaine Paxton Hall conveys his experience of “finding home” as, not only settling into Fearrington Village in March of 2010, but also as coming of age in a children’s home in Woodstock, Illinois and of feeling at home within his body and in American society. The rigors and emotional challenges of growing up in a children’s home hardly prepared him for the travails and triumphs that accompanied his medical, surgical and legal, gender transition completed in 1983 -at age 31 - the first such transition in North Carolina! As he recognized, his “keen intuition into the suffering of others,” helped him succeed in becoming highly accomplished in the medical profession.
