Of course not everyone is on Amber's side. There are plenty of people who have spoken out against their fight.

But through all of this, Amber is standing by her "Doodlebug," and she has some words of advice for parents.

"Love your kids. It's not hard. Stop overthinking it. If you’re more worried about what your neighbor or coworker might say about your transgender child than you are about teaching your child to live authentically, then you have your priorities all wrong... Don’t be your child’s first bully: help them stand up to bullies and shield them with your unconditional love."
