Proof that parenting is more than DNA and money. Parenting is about being a leader in their actions, not their words alone. You know you’re a REAL parent figure and leader to a child, person- adults included, when they seek you out and establish you with that coveted title and sacred role. My Mom isn’t my Mom by DNA but rather in everything else she is and has done that I had been missing my entire life. That’s a priceless gift to anyone. Thank God for the parents being the parents that they didn’t have to be!
