I am not a parent but I've sure been part of my nieces' life ever since they were born. Thinking about the past makes me wonder how fast time flies. I used to carry my niece and play with her. She was hard headed back then (and she's still stubborn now). But this time, she's in college and it saddens me to know that she might have to move to the dorm because the school is a 2 hour commute everyday.

Have you ever felt being part of another child's life who isn't your own?

I'm not sure of what you mean by the question, but if you're asking if anybody has ever felt like they were a part of a childs life that wasn't actually their own, then yes I have and it is hard to have to be far away from them.

Yes, I definitely have. Without going into a lot of detail, I helped raise my cousins for a few years and they were definitely as though they were my own. I miss them horribly, but I really hope that the time I spent with them had an effect.
