Just like any other little girls, 8-year-old Josie Romero loves wearing skirts and playing with dolls. 

She was born into a boy's body in Arizona, U.S., but now her sex has been legally changed and, with the help of drugs and surgery, she will grow up to be a woman.

She used to wrap up her army figures and rock them like a baby when she was a toddler, and she only wore colours like orange which were nearest to girly pink.

When she started to talk, she always said "I'm a girl."  Whenever someone called her a boy, she would correct them. At the age of four, she insisted: "No, I really am a girl."

The little girl's favourite game was to wrap her mother's scarf around her waist to make a skirt, according to the mother.

By the time she reached six, Josie had been diagnosed as transgender and was beginning her transition to becoming a female.
