The instruction manual for parenting doesn’t exist. You can search for it at the public library for hours and end up with nothing, because there’s not just one right way to raise children. Instead, parenthood is more like a “Choose Your Own Adventure” book. Each ending depends on the choices you make in the situations presented. And just like these children, being a father or mother (or grandmother, foster parent or Big Sister) comes in all shapes, sizes and colors.
Here, we portray 15 stories of parenting in Columbia. Whether it’s the mother of a Marine in combat, a basketball coach who isn’t afraid to place his son on the bench or parents raising their child in a trilingual household, we hope our chapters capture the only true requirement of parenthood: love.
