You're not really a mom if...

So, this chick was standing in line at the checkout in Walmart talking on the phone with someone really loudly and she said something about how you aren't really a mom if you adopted, if you married someone with kids, or if you got pregnant and miscarried but have no kids now.

What do you think? What makes a mom, a mom?

A mom is someone who has or is raising a child.  So yes adotive moms, moms currently and even moms who have lost a baby to illness,SIDS etc all moms. 

Miscarriage no I don't count that as a mom.

You're probably pro abortion. A mom is a mom if she had or has a child. You don't determine who a mom is. Even losing a child in the womb can be devastating.

It is devastating but still not a Mom till a baby is born. Yes, I am pro choice but even if I was pro life I would still say not a mom till a child is born.

Everyone has opinions. They can differ. Not everyone agrees on everything.
