To Me There Are Many Definitions Of The Word Mother And Many Are Applicable Only Those With 'Closed Eyes" Can't See That There Are Many Meanings To The Word Mother. A Person Who Gives Birth To You,Raises You,Loves You And Cares For A Child Is A Mother. Look At Mother Theresa She Was A Mother To Thousand Of Poor Children.Let's Look At Adoption Well Just Because She Didn't Physically Birth That Child Does That Mean She Isn't A Mother When I Look At The Word Birth Which Means The Emergence Of Baby Or Other Young From The Body Of It's Mother,The Start Of Life As A Physically Separate Being.When I Look At The Last Part Of This Definition The Start Of Life As A Physically Separate Being I Have To Think Of Those Babies Born To Unfit Mothers Or Drug Addicts And Being Adopted By A Loving Caring Mother Is Then A New Start Of Life.
When I Look At My Own Life I Had Many Mothers To Whom They All Gave Me Love,Care,Feed Me And Even Some Point In My Life The Birthed Me Not In The Natural Eye But Spiritually At Some Point In My Life. When I Think Of My Own Mother She Was A Mother To Many But Only Birthed Four.She Was A Kind Loving Caring Women Who Loved Many And Showed It Daily In Her Giving She Wasn't Selfish And She Shared Her Love. So When I Think Of A Mother I Think OF Every Positive Women Who Played Some Role In My Life Whether It Was By Birth Or Chance They Are And Still Is Considered My Mother......
