Couple allows 6-year-old daughter to become their son

SAN DIEGO (WFLX) - A couple's decision to let their little girl become a boy is getting a lot of attention on social media.

Last week, Jeff and Hillary Wittington posted a video to Youtube about their 6-year-old transgendered child, Ryland.

A seven-minute clip that has more than 3 million views and counting. The video explains how Ryland, who was born a girl, began insisting she was actually a boy.

They say after consulting with professionals, they realized this was more than a phase and changed his identity.
