When someone asks the parent of an adopted child, “Where is her real mom?” it can be really hurtful.
Adoptive mothers get asked about the real mom as if they themselves are some fake imposter. A real mom is the one who is there for their child day to day, when they are sick, tackling their homework or sharing a family meal. Real moms are there for the first day of school, the first boyfriend/girlfriend and the ups and downs of life.
Urban dictionary has a fun definition of what a mom is, “The woman who loves you unconditionally, the one who puts her kids before herself and the one who you can always count on above everyone else.
Just telling her your problems makes you feel better because mom’s always know how to make it all go away.”
