Question: Does DNA make you the mom/dad?
Total Votes: 55
Many people say that DNA makes you a mom. (Of course technically it does, we all know that) but does it really?
I recently have been told (only on CM) that I am just Dad's wife. I have raised our kids with my husband for 9 years. We have 6 kids (3 mine, 3 his). This pole isn't for me, I am comfortable with how I chose to raise my SK as my own and my husband raising my kids as his own. My kids haven't seen their dad for 9 years and his kids BM recently came back after 7 years. I know a lot of different ways my friends families have come to exist. For example:
Step parents raise kids ( don't share DNA.)
I have friends who could only adopt. (No DNA THERE)
I have friends who chose artificial insemination. (Dad's sperm count didn't permit children) (Only 1 parent shares the DNA)
so are the parents who don't share DNA with their child not the parents?
I am not trying to start a big debate, so please ladies be nice. Leave a simple comment and let us know your point of view!
