I didn't have to give birth to become a mother. My daughter doesn't share my or Gary's genes, DNA, freckles, hair texture, or bone structure. But her mannerisms, speech & voice tones, facial expressions, attittude (whew! what attitude!), gestures and habits are just like her dad's and mine. Sometimes I call her little Gary and she glares at me. ahhh just like her dad.
No, I didn't become a mother by giving birth.... raising my daughter taught me to be one.
