A mother's love to another's daughter

by LaLa2 on January 20, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

My love of another's daughter first started at age 17 when my best friend in high school became a single parent and I began to love this daughter even though she was another's daughter.

What I didn't know was this was only the beginning of my love affair with other's daughters. Today I have so many wonderful "other" daughters, with my most recent, living next door calling me MND = Mommy Next Door!
