A Baby Needs Both

My aunt wants to have a baby
Without a father
My uncle wants to have a baby
Without a mother.

A baby is a human being
Not a car, not a machine
A baby has feelings and emotions
One day, that baby will go into actions.

A baby needs both a mother and a father
For emotional support and good upbringing
A baby needs love and a grant for a better future
Love ourselves by taking care of our offspring.

My neighbor wants to have a baby
Without a mother or a father
This is not funny, this a sad reality
Thank God, I've never seen a perfect doctor.

So true. All these crazy ideas that people have without feeling what a baby needs and feels. Thanks for sharing. Seasons greetings!
