You will have the ability to import your existing secret key into 
Thunderbird (export from GnuPG with --armor).

And also, if a user has initially created the secret key inside 
Thunderbird, you will have the ability to backup/export your secret key, 
and import it into GnuPG.

Would that work for your scenario?
