World English Dictionary
|1.||a. a female who has given birth to offspring|
|b. ( as modifier ): a mother bird|
I suppose that answers that. Technically, I do fit as a mother.
Birthmom/Birthmother/Birthdad/Birthfather are not included in the dictionary. Does this, then, mean they dont exist? Seems I do exist. I am working on a definition of each, and then going to try and have them added to the dictionary.
How would you define any of these terms? I know that I am looking at this from a voluntary placement view, but would a woman/man who 'loses' a child to social services (involuntary) also be included in this group? How about a man that fathers a child biologically but does not take part in the childs life?
It makes me sad to realize these words are not going to just be associated with positive things. This is what I have so far:
One who biologically parents a child that is then (voluntarily or not) placed with another person/family whom is intending to raise the child.
Yes? No? How do I get something added to the dictionary?
