  • Absolutely! If you took care of your baby, loved her, held her, fed her, clothed her, changed her diapers, gave her hugs and kisses just like other parents, you are absolutely a mom. I am so sorry for your loss.

    Sorry, I disagree. I think if you have no living children that you aren't a mother.

  • First off.... Im very sorry for your loss! Secondly Im bothered by what gailll said... I have a question for gailll.... So what if you are a mother for 30 yrs and your child dies before you do? Does that mean that you arent a mother? Does that mean you never were? Im a little lost on your thinking of what a mother is gailll! Artbymarilyn... I personally think that the moment you conceived that child you became a mother! In my book you are a mother and have been since you made that child and you will be for the rest of your life no matter where your child is, weather its here on earth or in heaven! You are a mother to an angel!

  • if you ever notice gailll likes to contradict people, put people down, think that her opinion is the only one that matters. she's the biggest troll on here and her opinions don't matter at all cause they're bs.
