Who is a mother?
A mother is someone who wants her child to grow up to be a happy, healthy, successful adult. A mother pays attention to her child’s particular nature and responds to the specific needs of each child.
A mother accepts her child for who she or he is, and forgives her child for is mistakes, big or small. A mother is there for her child when he or she needs her, whenever that might be.
The truth is that, not every biological mother is up for the task. It’s easy to have a child; it’s not always so easy to care for one.
The good news is that, even though some biological mothers might be unable to do the job they’re meant to do, if we look around, we will most likely find some other women who will be happy to step-in to give us the mothering we need.
To all the mothers in the world, those who gave birth to us and those who didn’t, I want to thank you and tell you how much I appreciate you. Your love, care and sacrifices will never be forgotten.
