What is a mom?
Moms come in all shapes and sizes, cultures, ethnicities, languages, forms, and personalities. Some people say that moms also could be the one who raises you, not the one who gives birth to you. The reality is that a mom can be any female figure who can provide you with love, and support, raises you and gives you advice and attention throughout your life, and more. Also, sometimes our dads can be our mom and dad in one person.
Birth moms and Absent moms
Birth moms can be absent for so many reasons that sometimes are hard to understand. Some of them died, left home, moved to a new country or place, were incarcerated, and more. We can’t control sad things; they are outside of the circle of control.
You can control …
How do you show appreciation to the amazing females you have in your life and/or your MOM.
If you can identify many characteristics of the person you love, that means it is a GREAT MOM AND A VIP (Very Important Person)!
