So suffice to say I had a tough childhood, found my mothering in more than one place and feel blessed to have experience that helps my adopted teen treasures. I understand their fears.
I enjoy having "moms" and have a great time with them all. Each gives me special things- one keeps me in line, one worries about me and tells me to take care of myself to be able to take care of all these kiddos, one understands my heart for children- regardless of how they came to me.
I left up the pic of Ron's mom, she is a wonderful mom who gave me the wonderful man I call hubby. She deserves credit- lots of it 'cause he is great:))
So there really is a Mom, more so "moms" that exist. (Love you moms-- see I CAN listen and behave once in awhile)
