adoptive or biological?
Often... they are both in failing health, in their late 70's and I have to organise my time to make sure I am there for them when they need me to be :o)
When I couldn't feed myself, they fed me... when I couldn't even use a toilet they changed my nappies (diapers, for our American cousins) and got me a potty... when I couldn't read, they taught me... I could go on
Now, Mum's nearly blind and Dad can hardly breathe.
I'm a good son because I have wonderful parents. They made me a good parent too!
Every so often... They are only 3 miles away
Seldom. Both are dead
Was a long time ago. Thx.
Often, they aren't here anymore.
Everytime I talk to them.... Soooooo maybe like 4 times a day
