What defines a parent? Is it from the moment the male sperm hits the female egg? Is it from the moment the child is born? There are many different opinions on this one particular topic of parenting.
For me, personally, what makes you a parent isn’t based on a fertilized egg or the birth of that baby. To become a true parent you must be there for that offspring physically, mentally, emotionally, and endlessly. There is no limit to what a parent is and what a parent does. And if you ever find yourself in a predicament where you have to choose between the wellness of you or your child, remember to put your child first.
