Junior Brainard and Tina Montgomery were struggling to conceive a child. Like many couples, they were stressed out and worried about fertility. But their story is more complicated: Junior is a transgender man and Tina is a transgender woman. Both had been using hormone treatment for years, on their way to transitioning. Mariel Carr from The Pulse at WHYY in Philadelphia reports their story.
