HI there this message is to everyone .... First I agree its the child's choice ...but when a adopted parent or step parent raises that child THEY DO BLOOD OR NOT BECOME THE PARENT IE. MOM OR DAD.. second... Blood does not make you a mother raising a child does... I have never met my biological father and biological mother has been in and out of my life . I was raised by my grandmother and step grandfather who I called mom and dad so I would have a normal upbringing and have the feeling of having parents. Now that I am grown I love them more then anything they are my parents they are my mother and father ... Third TITLES are nothing its who really takes CARE and is responsible for the child. Four there is nothing wrong with calling a grandparent or step mom by there actually title ..but its nice when you feel like they are your parents to feel normal and apart of a family. Five ..Every one has different life situations so dont judge nobody for what they chose . I have a son with a man who has another child and my children are half brothers we are a family and my step son should call me mom cause I raise him and financially take care of him . DOES THAT NOT MAKE YOU A PARENT /MOTHER???!!!!
