The word “mom” is defined in the dictionary as:
- a female parent
- a maternal tenderness or affection
- to give birth
- to care for or protect like a mother
There’s only one part of the definition that refers solely to the single person who experienced the labor pains of giving birth. Yet a mother’s love is expressed in so many ways by so many different types of relationships.
