As many on here know, I am birth mom. I have an almost 3 year old (gack where did those years go) daughter whom I gave up for (open) adoption. I am very active in her life and very close with her adoptive parents. Some of my family didn't agree with my decision, some did. Ultimately, the ones who didn't like it can kiss my left toe because they weren't there when I needed them so why should they complain? It wasn't about them anyway, it was about what was best for my daughter.
So my question to you is-what makes a mother and what makes a mommy? To me, I don't refer to myself as her mommy because I'm not the one raising her and taking care of her everyday. I'm her mother because I gave birth to her and yes even made the decision to give her a chance at a better life. What do you think?
