Parent: Love over Blood
What makes a parent? I am aware we all are emotionally invested and attached to our parents and this might come as a sensitive topic, but I would love to know what does make a person a parent? Does the donation of sperm by men and eggs by women make them your parent? I don't think it works like that. I have been hearing this phrase," like my parent..." on numerous instances, addressed to people who came to me as their relative or those who don't have any blood connection to them. So what makes a person a parent? It's not as complicated as figuring out the mystery behind the Bermuda triangle. It's just as simple as 2 words of 1 syllable, Love and care. It is something that you do offer and retain. Besides these two things, effort and time play a significant role in the development and nurture of a child. Just because you are parents on paper doesn't make you parent in real. On the other hand, we must acknowledge and appreciate the efforts made by them to be your parents cause being parents isn't something that can be done by everyone. The hardships they endure and the sacrifice they make are indeed something that not everyone is strong enough to make. Parenting and love are beyond any blood relations and are the things that make you appreciate and love your life a lot more.
