I was wondering what you all think about what is the definition of "birthmoms" First of all,I HATE that term! I had twins that I gave up for adoption @ birth. I knew that this was the ONLY choice I had. It has turned out to be a loving & grateful decicion ,as I LOVE THESE Adoptive parents. Second,I have an 8 year old that I raised for 3 1/2 years,but was taken away by cps due to my illness. Would you consider me her "mom",as I had raised her up till that age & she was adopted @ an older age,(just last year,in fact @ age 7! ) I STILL feel like her mom. Is a birthmom just someone who gives birth? What about someone who raise their child,up to a point? Are we just BREEDERS? Personally,I think not!Any thoughts?
